CE:8 Lecture, AGD Subject code 780 (Esthetics)


Gone are the days where significant removal of healthy tooth structure was the prerequisite to esthetic restorative procedures and options. This full day lecture course will present multiple options to help the modern practitioner protect, preserve and restore their patient’s teeth while being conservative and profitable. Treatment options from early preventive product applications to complex comprehensive interdisciplinary adhesive reconstructions will be discussed and shared using meticulously documented clinical cases.

  • Properly select cases that are ideal for direct composite veneering
    versus indirect porcelain veneers.
