Event Details

A Restorative Mini-Residency 
Friday 23 July – Saturday 24 July – VIRTUAL PRESENTER
9:00am – 4:30pm – 13.0 CPD Hours

Dr Jason Smithson will join us via video link at the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development for this virtual presentation from his dental studio in the United Kingdom. Although virtual, the sessions will be fully interactive. You’ll still have the opportunity to directly discuss the topic with Dr Smithson, watch demonstrations live, and receive immediate feedback on the hands-on simulation exercises you’ll carry out

What do we do when a direct restoration would seem wildly optimistic, yet a crown overly destructive? 

ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development is proud to again offer this unique two-day course with Dr Jason Smithson, a leading light in the field of direct composite resin artistry and minimally invasive all-ceramic restorations, to Australian dentists in 2021! 

This year’s course will see Dr Smithson present virtually from the UK, providing all participants with his extensive wealth of knowledge and expertise via video-link.

In recent years it has become well accepted that direct composite resin restorations are predictable in small to medium sized cavities; similarly, the durability of full coverage crowns is well known. However, the grey area is when a cavity falls somewhere between the two: what do we do when a direct restoration would seem wildly optimistic, yet a crown overly destructive?

These and many other similar questions go through the mind of the busy general practitioner many times every day. This comprehensive, evidence-based workshop offers clear, easily understandable protocols to simplify the decision-making process and compliments this with end-to-end workflows to rapidly restore posterior teeth with direct composite resin in more simple cavities and ceramic onlays for more broken-down teeth. Likewise, protocols for both direct resin and full coverage crowns are explored in the anterior dentition. This class is 75% Hands-On.

This is a unique CPD education experience with Dr Smithson presenting via video-link and is not to be missed! Register now as places are limited!

Topics include

  • How to place a Class 1 direct composite resin with amazing life-like occlusal morphology enhanced with tints.
  • How to restore a large MID fracture on an anterior tooth with direct-resin, yet achieve aesthetics to rival porcelain.
  • How to create believable incisal edge effects such as opacities, incisal edge halos and crack lines.
  • How to rapidly polish to recreate natural enamel surfaces
  • How to prepare ultra-conservative ceramic onlays in teeth, which are too heavily broken down for direct resin whilst avoiding full veneer crown preparations: step-by-step protocols for simple, rapid preparation from compromised tooth to ideal prep within 10 minutes.
  • How to deal with margins, which are deep within the gingival sulcus: GME (Gingival Margin Elevation) for hard tissue conservation, simplified impression taking and easy cementation. 
  • How to optimize bond strengths in conservative non-retentive onlay preparations with IDS (Immediate Dentine Sealing).
  • How to simply and predictably prepare an upper central incisor for a full veneer crown and produce a beautiful, predictable all-ceramic restoration.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the ceramic onlay and full veneer crown
  • To be able to prepare a central incisor for a full veneer crown
  • Prepare an upper first molar for an MOD Ceramic Onlay with IDS, GME and fabrication of a provisional restoration.
  • To understand Class 1 and Class 4 restorations
  • Successfully place a Class 1 direct restoration with dentin and enamel shades and fissure tints
  • To be able to restore an upper incisor tooth Class 4 with direct resin, create life-like incisal edge effects and finish with a rapid efficient polishing protocol
