MORNING SESSIONSaturday 01.04.2023Hotel Park Inn Krakow
09:30 - 12:00room Beta 2
Both patients and dentists increasingly demand restorations made of all-ceramics that cannot be distinguished from the natural tooth structure. The challenge is to copy nature, achieve a perfect colour match and fabricate esthetical superior restorations. This seminar affords you the opportunity to learn all relevant parameters around layering and ceramics. From the principles to high end performance, all steps will be shown and explained to have unlimited access to the world of ceramics.
- Material options
- Lifelike shading
- Controlling absorption and reflection
- Achieving individual degrees of translucency
- Ceramic firing
- Shape and shade design using the additive layering technique
- Creating physiological morphology

Implanto-Prosthodontics, Biommimetics: Composite vs Ceramics
Join us for the main session of the Dental Spaghetti Congress at the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology.
12:45 - 13:45
Modern implant prosthodontics: dos and don’t’s.
Dr n. med. Riccardo KrausAbout the speaker
What are the most important aspects in implant prosthodontics? What are the most common mistakes, what to pay special attention to, and what to avoid. Lots of advice derived from clinical experience combined with recent scientific knowledge.
We will talk about digital technologies and the latest developments in implantology. What are the advantages and disadvantages, especially in terms of efficiency?
What materials are indicated for implant-supported restorations today? We will begin by discussing which abutments, considering different materials and types of retention, one can or should use. Then we will move on to crowns, with an emphasis on esthetics as well.
We will conclude by discussing the long-term performance of the entire reconstruction and possible future developments.

Fascinating all – ceramics – Beyond the Limits
All-ceramics are indispensable to the routine work of today’s dental laboratories. The reasons for the popularity of metal-free restorations include a growing awareness of esthetics and biocompatibility and an increased demand for perfection. Over several decades, all-ceramics and zirconia have established themselves as the restorative material od choice. The materials and their respective processing techniques are tried and tested scientifically proven. However, the following question remains: Have these materials actually made work easier or better, or just different? This presentation is dedicated to exploring this question and answering it on the basis of many different case studies and background information. Today’s wide selection of materials and the different possibilities of combining them offer a solution to every problem. Nevertheless, in order to obtain a successful results, a profound knowledge and understanding of the materials and technologies is required. A sound strategy must be developed that covers every step of the treatment process from the planning stage and the selection of materials to the finishing of the restoration. Beyond that, there are no limits: from minimally invasive veneers to extensive dental restorations and complex implant-supported solutions. These materials are a real boon for laboratories in the 21st century.
15:50 - 17:00
Biommimetic Dentistry in the posterior region: Composite Restorations
Javier Tapia-Guadix, DDS, CG ArtistAbout the speaker
Direct composite posterior restorations are the pillars of restorative dentistry, as such they become of capital importance as they provide the stability to a proper restored dentition. However, achieving stable, high quality, long-lasting direct restorations is technique sensitive and requires a proper understanding of many factors including preparation, bonding and layering among others. Furthermore the new generation of materials, including fibre-reinforced dentin replacement, has opened a new window to enable direct restorations to have a performance and prognosis similar to indirect restorations.
- Move towards a more conservative and predictable approach in restorative dentistry.
- Understand the histo-anatomic relation between enamel and dentin.
- Learn to emulate dental tissues with different restorative materials, from both optical and bio-mechanical perspective. Fibre-reinforced composite dentin replacement and nano-hybrid enamel replacement.
- Learn strategies for achieving optimal bond strength to ensure durability of the restorations.
- Incorporate key elements in the workflow to facilitate the best finishing of the restorations.
17:00 - 18:00
How to design and achieve proper surface structure of anterior restoration?
Dr German GomezAbout the speaker
In aesthetic dentistry one of the major factors, that drive the integration of a restoration with the adjacent teeth is the shape. In the anterior teeth the outline silhouette, light reflective areas, surface texture and gloss are the important keys to a natural looking restoration.
In this lecture we will go through the theory of composite layering and the primary, secondary and tertiary anatomy of front teeth. To achieve these goals, it is essential to use the correct composites and tools. Step-by step we will be reviewing all the necessary knowledge to fulfil a natural look.
18:00 - 18:30
