Course Description

This lecture will cover from basic principles of chairside of CAD/CAM workflow, to material selection and advanced esthetic solutions. The main purpose is to demonstrate how the clinician can control the entire digital workflow from preparation imaging to digital design and in-office customization of ceramic restorations.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the principles of CAD/CAM workflow
  • Understand chairside material choices for same-day ceramic restorations
  • Appreciate how advanced CAD/CAM applications and chairside customization can solve challenging esthetic cases


Dr. Gisele Neiva graduated from The Federal University of Paraná School of Dentistry (Brazil) in 1991. She has earned two master degrees: Master in Restorative Dentistry from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1997 and Master in Clinical Research Design & Statistical Analysis from The University of Michigan School of Public Health OJ/OC Program in 2005.

Dr. Neiva has been involved in clinical and laboratory research for over 20 years. Her initial work focused on laboratory materials testing studies of composite resins, resin cements and dental ceramics resulting in a number of publications in peer- reviewed journals. For the last seven years, she has been collaborating on several large randomized clinical trials of CAD/CAM and digital dentistry technology applied to restorative dentistry. Currently underway clinical research projects include randomized longitudinal studies of chair-side CAD/CAM generated ceramic onlays and crowns with novel ceramic materials and adhesive cements. She is prospectively following up restorations that were previously placed in three different projects and documenting data following USPHS criteria. Dr. Neiva is also studying in vitro surface roughness of chairside CAD/CAM restorations of various materials.
