Course Outline: 


The introduction of a highly translucent zirconium-reinforced lithium silicate glass ceramic foundation, supporting average biaxial strengths of over 541Mpa with uncompromised shade consistency with streamlined processing steps will be presented. In addition, for he production of “bread & butter” monolithic crowns, new pre-shaded highly translucent and multicolor zirconia materials that rival

micro-layered ceramics are now available to address anterior esthetics and posterior strength concerns without the need for internal or external staining for shade matching. Now, two “Out of the Box” materials meeting patient needs, strength, shade tab reproduction, and have a simplified process

work-flow are available.


Program Objectives:

  • Understanding of available materials to meet patient indications.


  • Effectual staining techniques that produce shade tab colors.

  • Streamlined processing of Lithium and Zirconium restorative materials.

  • Optimizing esthetics of CAD/CAM fabricated monolithic restorations.

  • Use of Effectual porcelains to provide depth and vitality through micro-layering.

Christian Ferrari


Course Outline: 


Durant cette conférence, Christian Ferrari va vous présenter les avantages des nouvelles gammes de céramiques en pâte One Touch; Apporter de la vie aux couronnes monolithiques, augmenter la finesse et la densité de surface aux céramiques stratifiées, gérer avec plus de facilité la luminosité interne, mais aussi la vivacité des couleurs, tout en augmentant leur translucidité et leur profondeur. Approcher encore plus la nature en créant un noyau interne avec la céramique en poudre Céra Motion et y intégrant ensuite des effets de profondeur avec les pâtes en One Touch et One Touch No limits. Enfin, élaborer des fausses gencives très naturelles grâce au One Touch Pink.


Christian Ferrari Céramiste dentaire, leader d’opinion, conférencier reconnu internationalement, Christian Ferrari est un prothésiste dentaire venant de France tout récemment arrivé au Québec. Après avoir passé dix années en Suisse auprès de céramistes de renom, il ouvre son premier laboratoire en France. Très rapidement reconnu pour son sens et sa maîtrise de l’esthétique, il fût approché par une maison internationale et apporta sa contribution au développement des lignes de céramiques, dont sa propre porcelaine, qu’il présenta à travers le monde. Reconnu également pour ses qualités de photographe, il contribua à l’élaboration de nombreux ouvrages. En 2008, il créa sa propre Académie dentaire, où il forma de nombreux céramistes venant de tous pays.

Sa passion, mais aussi sa curiosité, le pousse aujourd’hui à explorer le potentiel des nouvelles générations de céramiques en pâte… « Ceramotion One Touch »
