Abstract

Dr. Daniel Butterman will guide webinar attendees through a digital abutment workflow using a CAD/CAM software system, including how to design a crown restoration from a core file. He also will examine the advantages of using zirconia to fabricate the final crown restoration due to the material’s strength, esthetics, and ideal fit to the abutment. Dr. Butterman will then demonstrate how to create a hole in the unsintered crown for screw-retained, pre- and post-sintering polishing, and enhancement with a paste stain. Lastly, he will discuss the process of bonding the zirconia crown to the abutment using a universal self-adhesive resin cement.
