     Vident’s hands-on, shade consistency workshop guides participants through a complete understanding of the material science and clinical applications of CAD/CAM milled ceramics and low-wear rate porcelain. Attendees will learn about stain and glaze techniques and their application to conventional porcelain fused-to-metal, all-ceramic and CAD/CAM milled ceramic restorations. Use of the VITA Classical and 3D-Master® shade guides will be clearly explained, factoring in both underlying tooth preparations and adhesive bonding influences for CEREC considerations. The use of the VITA Easyshade® Compact digital shade-taking device, which offers unparalleled accuracy and speed in shade determination, will also be covered. Additional topics will include surface texture, axial contour enhancement, cutback and VITA VM®9 layering techniques, color science and shade, occlusal morphology, esthetic color effects, optimizing marginal fit and Akzent modifiers. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive 4 CE credit hours.
