Event Details

It wasn’t so long ago that to aesthetically enhance a smile one would turn to say a porcelain crown or porcelain veneer. This was costly—financially and more importantly biologically. It’s amazing how times have changed with the versatility of composite. Through creative techniques we are now able to provide conservative and durable aesthetic solutions to a greater number of patients (even for the most aesthetically demanding). This lecture and hands-on workshop will focus on the creative use of composite to close diastema’s/dark triangles, and aesthetic enhancement of dark teeth using veneering techniques. Lecture:

  • Review of treatment planning (including smile design concepts)
  • Material selection – Layering techniques
  • Tooth isolation/gingival management
  • Contouring & finishing techniques in the use of composite for;

  1. Veneers
  2. Dark tooth block-out
  3. Diastema/dark ‘triangle’ closures
