Integration of Esthetic Dentistry in Routine and Complex Prosthodontics

A presentation by Dr. Kenneth Malament

Dentistry that is esthetic, comfortable, survives long term and minimizes health risks to the patient is an important clinical objective.  Ceramics are the most consistently predictable esthetic dental material with advances in digital design, CAD CAM, dental implants and new generations of dental ceramics, ones ask if the basic tenants in education and treatment being overridden.  What needs to be mastered by students today?

This is a key question.

Managing simple and complex restorative issues is critical to improving patient acceptance and long term ceramic success.  Integrating the efforts of laboratory technologists and managing occlusion and patient’s desires have a profound impact on the practice of dentistry.

Original research will be presented documenting the clinical behavior of almost seven thousand all-ceramic restorations and specifically significantly more than 3400 E Max Lithium Disilicate restorations.


  1. To understand what factors and concerns a prosthodontist would have treating patients that require “esthetic procedures”.
  2. To understand the controversies that exists with modern dental materials.
  3. To understand what clinical factors impact on long term survival of dental ceramic materials. The e max lithium disilicate ceramic restoration has proved with over 3500 restorations and 12 years to be the most successful ceramic ever studied.
  4. To understand the restoration of dental implants in complex conditions.
