Come see Don Cornell’s Keynote presentation during the Southern States Symposium & Expo!
The Future of Digital and Esthetics in the Age of Monolithic Restorations

CAD/CAM continues to transform the dental industry. Beyond manufacturing, digital technologies are rapidly reshaping the way we diagnose, treatment plan and communicate. And rapid improvements in CAD/CAM materials have created a growing demand for monolithic restorations. With roughly 85% of all metal free restorations now monolithic, technicians must find new materials and techniques for achieving esthetic outcomes traditionally achieved with ceramic layering.
In this presentation, Mr. Cornell will demonstrate through several patient cases, the growing utility of digital technologies in the laboratory and the dental clinic, and the expanding role of the dental technologist as a result. He will also look critically at CAD/CAM materials, where we are today and where we are headed, and how to achieve exceptional esthetic outcomes with monolithic and minimally layered restorations.
Mr. Cornell graduated from his Dental Technology Program in 1981. He worked in a small quality laboratory until opening his own lab in 1985. In 1988, Mr. Cornell began lecturing and teaching advanced ceramic techniques to dentists and technicians in the United States. In 1989, he moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to work with Dr. Robert Winter, where he stayed until 1993. Mr. Cornell now operates his laboratory in Madison, Connecticut. He has been extensively published in both dental and technical journals and has lectured and taught advanced ceramic techniques in more than thirty countries around the world to date.
