Esthetic Dentistry-"Redefine the Cliche" Hands On Workshop! 

This 2 Day Workshop will provide updates on new materials (direct and indirect) as well as technologies essential to contemporary practice.

Topics covered:

  • Adhesive advancements and bonding.
  • Impressions yesterday, today and tomorrow
  • Direct resin restorations.
  • Indirect ceramic options.
  • Treatment planning and design.
  • Latest product entries and technologies costing under 10K.
  • Pre prosthetic orthodontics to optimize restorative results (Invisalign).
  • Developing esthetic restorations while respecting tooth structure.

No longer is “esthetics” considered an option, upgrade or election for patients in the contemporary restorative practice; rather, it is an expectation. Ranging from a simple posterior resin to full smile rehabilitation, the desire for an optimal esthetic outcome is essentially universal amongst patients. Meanwhile, about a decade has passed since the perfect storm of influences, both internal and external to our profession landed us in the middle of the era of “cosmetic dentistry”. Since then, several factors including economic turmoil, emerging concepts of “conservative restorative dentistry”, the introduction of new materials and technologies, market place demands and realignment of priorities within the profession all have ushered in a new and exciting era for restorative dentistry.
