Hands-on Course

Biomimetic Minimally Invasive Restorative Dentistry in Everyday Practice


  • How to prepare ultra-conservative ceramic onlays in teeth, which are too heavily broken down for direct resin whilst avoiding aggressive 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 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.
