Lecture – “Fundamentals of Fixed: Prosthodontics: The Methods and Materials for Achieving Successful Patient Outcomes”


Dr. Miles R. Cone

Dr. Miles R. Cone is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and completed a three-year Prosthodontic residency program while serving in the United States Army before being honorably discharged as a field grade officer in the rank of Major.

In addition to achieving board certification and diplomate status within his specialty, Dr. Cone has also successfully challenged all the requirements necessary to earn his designation as a Certified Dental Technician.

Currently, Dr. Cone’s career in civilian life revolves around his dual role as the owner of Nuance Dental Specialists, a private practice dental clinic limited to prosthetic dentistry in the heart of Portland, ME, and his role as a Key Opinion Leader.

When Dr. Cone is not at the chair, in the classroom teaching, or at the lab bench, he can be found lecturing on the international circuit, publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and relaxing at home with his wife, four children, and two English Bulldogs in Maine.

Day 1 Lecture: Fundamental Components of Fixed Prosthodontics

Course Description: This full-day session will focus on the treatment planning, laboratory communication, material selection, fabrication, and delivery of indirect fixed prosthetics – including porcelain laminate veneers, full-coverage crowns, bridges, and full-arch implant restorations for the edentulous patient. Steps will include diagnostic casts/intraoral scans, communication between the technician/specialists, shade taking, waxups, provisionals, impression techniques, final delivery, and the importance of photographic case documentation.

Day 2 Lecture + Hands-On: Aesthetic Case Studies: Tips and Tricks for Success

Course Description: This full-day session will focus specifically on the treatment of difficult cases in the anterior aesthetic zone. Pre-treatment tooth bleaching protocols, tips and tricks for shade matching using a tooth shade colorimeter, crossed-polarized light photography, staining + glazing custom shade tabs, and effective ways of communicating with the ceramist will be covered.

Additional time will be dedicated to outlining the equipment and techniques used by the clinician and technician for digital dental photography and collaboration. The hands-on portion will involve the fabrication of a single central temporary crown and the subsequent trimming, contouring, staining, and glazing of the provisional restoration for use as a full customized
shade tab for the ceramist.

Day 3 Lecture + Hands-On: Putting It All Together – Review + Q&A

Course Description: This final session will provide additional case-studies that review the most important topics/points covered during the last two days, as well as discuss the ways in which clinicians can showcase their completed treatments to patients, colleagues, and in the peer-reviewed literature. This session will also allow time for additional questions and answers for the participants that require further attention.


  1. Review various treatment planning principles found in the field of contemporary fixed prosthetics for both fixed and implant dentistry.
  2. Analyze many of the current materials available to the clinician and dental technician that can be utilized in the restoration of implants, and fixed crown and bridge treatments.
