  1. 1. April 4th, 2008 (Lectures) “Aesthetic Harmony” Willi Geller, Oral Design Switzerland Master ceramist Willi Geller is known the world over for uncompromising aesthetics and his innovations in materials and techniques. Today, aesthetic excellence is attainable with a wide variety of ceramic options; however, using these materials side-by-side can present a unique The 2008 Oral Design Symposium in conjunction with NYU 3rd Annual challenge. Mr. Geller will discuss the materials and techniques he employs for achieving aesthetic harmony in a combination case fabricated with zirconia and metal ceramics. Ceramic Symposium is presenting “Oral Metamorphosis - The Masters Teach the Art behind the Smile”. The advancement of contemporary Aesthetic dentistry has “Materials and Technique Selection in Aesthetic Dentistry. A Biological Approach” been primarily based on ceramic development and the clinical usage of it. Dr. Giuseppe Allais, DDS, Italy It is hard to compete in Aesthetic dentistry without the knowledge of the Due to the demand of restorative dentistry with superior cosmetic results, aesthetic dentistry has dramatically improved over the last 20 years. We now have the ability to create prosthesis possibilities of ceramics and the art put into it by the Master Ceramists. Today the with the same appearance of natural teeth. These improvements are correlated to new materials ceramist and clinician come together to create and understand the development of that have optical characteristics close to natural tissue leading to more precise and accurate techniques. There are many materials on the market today that are not yet clinically proven for light reflective materials that actually mimic nature. This symposium will explore technicians as well as, practitioners. This presentation will cover procedures and materials that the type of skills and materials used in implant cases as well as, high performance not only stand the test of time, but also create the up most pleasing results aesthetically. ceramics such as: Zirconia and Alumina. Our Masters will teach the joining of art and science to enrich the knowledge and creativity of Aesthetic Dentistry and “The Role of the Dental Technician for Establishing Optimal Aesthetics” Jean Marc Etienne, Oral Design France transform the lives and smiles of thousands of patients from around the world. CAD CAM technologies continue to grow in the dental practice. The range of prosthetic “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” ~Phyllis Diller solutions has recently been improved in an aesthetic and innovative way, particularly for cemented and screw-retained zirconia bridges. Designing and manufacturing complex dental restorations combining biocompatible materials, new and digital techniques has become daily practice for the dental technician. Today more than ever, real team methods adopted by the implantologist, prosthodontist and dental technician will lead to great prosthetic satisfaction.

Comparisons between natural teeth and dental ceramics will Expertise fundamentally begins with a thorough understanding of the academics and the also be addressed. underlying principles of technical dentistry. Accurate communication and documentation between dentist and laboratory is vital for proper case planning and sequencing. The first half of the course is dedicated to learning how to build an accurate blueprint of “The Dynamics of Nature in Oral Implantology” casework that will lead to successful results. In the second half of this course science and art Juergen Mehrhof, MDT, Oral Design Germany converge with “hands-on” education. You will learn the latest advancements in ceramic materials, preparation and application techniques by the leading authorities in the field. The clinical success of Osseo integrated implants has been well documented.
