In addition to Dr Mahul Patel's videos and courses, Dr Basil Mizrahi has done a really good lecture on how to select the correct restoration. In modern day dentistry, we face a crossroads when deciding how to restore a tooth. Should we rely on resin bonding or mechanical resistance form and precision?
His lecture will discuss various scenarios, indications and contra-indications for different restorations and materials including all-ceramic crowns, PFM crowns, tooth coloured onlays, gold onlays, Monolithic Zirconia amongst others.
His lecture is amazing to answer your questions. Click here to view the complete lecture
