Course Descriptions

Lecture Portion

The Lecture portion of this course focuses on these important topics:

  • Diagnosing and treatment planning of debilitated and deteriorating dentitions
  • Restoring anterior guidance for long-term function
  • Transitional Bonding: learning exactly how to quickly rehab teeth with composite

This course will change the way you treatment plan and restore many patients by providing you with a practical system to confidently deal with bigger and more complex cases - that saves patients time, money and conserves tooth structure. This unique course teaches an extremely conservative composite technique - transitional bonding - that will allow you to achieve better results so that every case will be easier and more predictable to successfully complete - even if you plan to finish the case in porcelain! You will learn how to lengthen teeth to restore anterior guidance for improved esthetics and function as well as when and how to open vertical dimension. This could be the most practical, conservative course you've ever taken!

Hands-on Portion

The Hands-on portion of this course focuses on:

  • Adding length anterior teeth - for transitional and long-term success
  • Handling combination porcelain & composite cases including temporization
  • Step-by-step technique to quickly rehab teeth with composite: Transitional Bonding

Many patients needing smile makeovers could save money and tooth structure if only the worst teeth were restored with porcelain and other teeth could be restored with composite. Such combination cases have special challenges related to sequencing treatment, temporization, shade matching and lab communication. This hands-on workshop will allow every attendee to treat a case with all six upper anterior teeth severely worn - only the central incisors require porcelain restorations while the others will be lengthened with composite. Cases that require lengthening are challenging and this course will provide skills to more predictably satisfy their functional and esthetic demands.

Maximum function and ideal esthetics are achievable with the proper knowledge and skills. This unique hands-on course is designed to give you the confidence to offer your patients more and better options immediately!!
