Competence in Esthetics 2019


From 15 – 16 November 2019, Ivoclar Vivadent, with partner Planmeca, presented Competence in Esthetics 2019 in Budapest, an annual symposium for dentists and dental technicians.

This year, 19 internationally renowned experts held exciting and topical lectures and live demos featuring products, manufacturing and processing techniques, and the latest innovation in the field of dentistry. The topic of "efficient aesthetics" underlines the ´time is money´ premise, and aims at achieving both the outstanding aesthetics as well as high functionality in a shorter amount of time.

Dr Omar Hamid spoke on CAD/CAM restorations after guided implantation, while Dr Igor Ristic enlightened the audience on implementing digital workflow in modern treatment concepts. The rapid development of digital equipment means that today’s clinicians are challenged to face sudden changes in treatment concept, restorative protocols and the need to transform some clinical procedures from analogue to digital.

In this lecture, Dr Ristic explained the current stand of digitalisation in dentistry, its benefits, potential, points of improvement, and traditional clinical routines that should be digitalised.
