This in-depth 2 day program, in a class limited to 14 attendees, will address all the techniques, products and technology required to master, veneers and direct bonding. In light of today’s economic trends it is directed toward accelerating the procedures while improving your speed, efficiency and predictability.
This program will increase your understanding and skill level in all aspects of restorative dentistry, not only by hearing it, but by doing it.--Thereby, decreasing your stress while developing rapidity and efficiency the very next day in practice.
Full coverage versus partial coverage restorations –all within the context of complete smile design.
The recent evolution in pressed / milled ceramics, dental adhesives and composite materials have combined synergistically to deliver more conservative restorations that are not only indiscernible from natural teeth but increasingly strong and easier. This exponentially increases their new clinical applications, while retaining more natural tooth structure and enamel.
It becomes an additive conservative process as opposed to aggressive resective techniques traditionally used for so many alternative restorations.
This course will cover::
Accelerated, step-by-step tooth preparation techniques
The all important "mock-up" or trial smile - "160 seconds" to success
Simplifying and perfecting the subgingival finish line
Hand pieces, diamond and carbide burs - what to use and why
Choosing bonding, ceramic and cementing systems
Veneers - why the fail and how to avoid problems
Predictable impressions with gingival retractions and porcelain repairs made easy.
Temporary restorations - simple rapid fabricating
Selecting a simple provisional material
Effective shade communication
Essential 10 rules of gingival facial and dental esthetics
Simplified rapid finishing techniques
Treatment planning for efficiency and practice building
The pressed ceramic or layered feldspathic choice
The hands-on sessions are a critical aspect in learning. First hearing and seeing the technique; then actually doing it yourself, followed by self testing the step-by-step techniques and instrument choices described in the lectures.
This will include::
The changed approach to veneer preparation techniques and guidlines
Dependable .3mm porcelain repairs
Temporary restoration alternatives
Fabricating and using the silicone index
Easy laboratory systems for fabricating veneers
