The originality of this course consists in imitating the referenced photo.

 During all the course, it will be drawn a parallel with the PFM for making the difference on  methods of work and advantages.

The restoration will be made with an articulator that the participant will bring along to the course. 

The participants will prepare in their laboratories :

- 1 framework  ( color A1 )  in zirconium.

- A gingival flange (plaster, soft resin etc)

 This framework will be seated on the preparations ready for layering.

The course participant will receive 3 models :

  • 1 upper model with preparations.
  • 1 lower model with antagonists.
  • 1 aesthetic model.

He will have to bring his small personal instrumentation for modeling and scraping (burs, spatulas, brushes ...)
