Copy of Problems with Routine Crown and Bridgework

Please join Dr. Simon Parsons as we will explore common problems in routine crown and bridgework.

Key Learnings

  • What Problems Arise with Crown and Bridgework

  • Troubleshooting Aesthetic Problems

  • Troubleshooting Fit Problems


We will examine why problems are experienced at the time of issuing a restoration, often requiring significant clinical time to adjust, or resulting in the need for a remake. By understanding where errors arise, a clinician can put into place measures to minimise the risk of error and the headaches that might otherwise ensue. We will explore which procedures pose the largest risk of problems and consider alternative approaches with a higher degree of reliability and predictability.
