Spear Education – A brand-new adhesive that bonds to zirconia!

Improving our knowledge of dentistry

Tracy and Dale took time out of their schedule this month for continuing education at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry. The Scottsdale Center for Dentistry is a $50 million, 65-thousand square foot facility that serves as a world-class continuing education facility right here in the Phoenix Valley. It was a pleasure for us to be with so many professionals who are striving for excellence in dentistry through an ongoing commitment to education at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry.

In this course, Excellence in Restorative Procedures and Techniques, Dr. Frank Spear discussed: the advantages and disadvantages of modern esthetic materials, temporization techniques, dentin adhesives, material selection and tooth preparation techniques for all different posterior restorative possibilities, inlays, onlays, full crowns, and veneers.

An exciting new adhesive

Perhaps the most exciting bit of information we received was Dr. Spear’s announcement of a new dental adhesive that will bond to zirconia (feel free to contact us for more info)! This is an important development both for our industry and for us as the price of alloys continue to increase and the use of all-ceramic and zirconia-based restorations are becoming more and more popular.

We strive to make you a hero to your patients!
