GC Initial - Live Patient Course
All Ceramic for Every Indication
A layering formula which leaves endless possibilities for creativity

MDT Ralf Dahl
1-2nd February 2019
Wildschönau, Austria

Course description

In this live patient course we will look at several possibilities leading us to choose the right Initial veneering ceramic for different substructures:
– The correct choice and individualization for lithium disilicate – GC LiSi frame work
– Right choice of mono lithium material recording to the shade of the patient
– Specifics of individual Zirconia materials and their layering
– We try to find an answer in which way metal ceramic can compete with all ceramic

 Main focus points:

– Introduction to GC Initial and the philosophy behind the system 
– Working process for (Oxid) porcelains and lithium – disilicate frame work
– Lithium disilicate build up or layering a Zirconia crown in the right shape, colour and surface  structure
– Tips and tricks for an effective work process and an aesthetic outcome

Together we will take the patients shade and a digital image. After establishing the right shade we are going to choose the correct Initial veneering ceramic.  The different build up steps will be explained and demonstrated in order to achieve the same aesthetic outcome. First try-in will be done reflecting the result by means of a good restoration into the mouth.

We will do the first try in on the patient in the dental practice, where every technician can see the result through a good integration into the mouth.  

A successful aesthetically outcome is predictable and no longer a coincidence.
