Second-year students attending the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) recently participated in a hands-on training course on VITA VM13 porcelains. Led by well-known lecturers Jason Lohr, RDT, CDT and Ken Chizick, RDT, CDT, attendees learned how to use a modified 3D Ceramic Build-up and an Advanced 3D Ceramic Build-up technique. The purpose of the course was to demonstrate the versatility of using VITA VM13 porcelains for several metal ceramics applications by utilizing a step-by-step technique. Each participant was given the knowledge and tools to build two anterior restorations with special emphasis placed on exploring color.            Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System, VITA Easyshade Compact digital shade-taking device and quality VITA restorative materials.            To register for a course or for information on a specific course, call Norma Tinajero at 800-828-3839 x238.
