About the course:

Aesthetics is still one of the key driving forces in dentistry today – whether it is one tooth or an entire mouth. What do we really need to consider prior to starting an aesthetic case? The ability to offer our patients options in the pursuit of their restorative goals is paramount. This program will focus on understanding current trends and materials in both direct and indirect restorative dentistry. We will discuss the differences between translucent zirconia, and lithium disilicate (IPS e.max), and when to prescribe the different materials. We will also discuss the differences and indications of bonding versus cementing as well as new developments, trends and technologies in direct restorative dentistry. This program will be a combination of lecture and hands on exercises.

Course Objectives:

  • What motivates a patient to enhance their smile?
  • Understanding the demographics of your patients and how that affects
    treatment options and acceptance
  • Factors influencing direct material selection- lithium disilicate or zirconia
  • Best to bond, cement or guess?
  • Bulk fill vs layering in direct composites – Does it REALLY matter?
  • Direct resin veneers as nice as porcelain
  • Multidisciplinary cases illustrating the “team approach”
  • Hands-on experience with practical tips and techniques you can utilize
    immediately in your practice
