Event Details

This hands-on course is designed for Dentists.


Planning and executing anterior composite resins can be challenging even in the most experienced dentists’ hands. There are many variables which must be considered during the treatment planning process from the large-scale features such as facial analysis, through to the small-scale features such as the incisal edge position and embrasures. In this course Dr Docherty will outline the essential keys for planning smile design with anterior composite resin followed by an in depth look at layering techniques and tips on shade selection, using a putty key palatal stent, and a huge amount of time will be spent completing hands-on composite exercises such as a single shade bleach veneer and a layered multiple shade anterior restoration.
