Gérald Ubassy proposes a course, where you can make 1 crown on ceramic e.max Press or Zirconium and a 1 veneer layered on pressed framework.

The goal, is to better understand their stratification by always making a parallel between the two, but especially to optimize the result, according to the clinical constraints and the aesthetic requirements.

There is also talk, to demystify the realization of the veneer by presenting a technique accessible to all, allowing production work.

Throughout these two days, Gerald Ubassy will use his latest book "Watch and do it yourself" to analyze its various layerings.

The restorations will be made with a semi-adjustable articulator that the participant will bring along to the course.

The participant will prepare in his laboratory :

2 single frameworks in e.max Press (MO1) or LTA1, at his/her choice.
1 gingival flange (plaster, soft resin, etc)
2 wax patterns for esthetics and shapes
Those frameworks, ( adjusted to 0,4mm for veneer ) will be seated on the preparation without carrying out the connection firing.

For those who don’t have the pressed system, at their request, we can make the frameworks.


The course participant will receive 3 models :

1 upper model with 3 preparations.
1 lower model with antagonists.
1 study model.
