MORNING

Direct Resin in the Anterior Dentition: The ABCDE of the complex case

 

Overview:

Conventionally, discolored teeth and advanced wear cases are treated with indirect restorations: crowns and veneers. This approach is well based in the literature and over time, has proven highly successful, however, in some cases it may prove expensive in terms of overall cost, treatment times and most critically loss of tooth structure.

This Master class is designed to allow the experienced practitioner to confidently approach more challenging anterior cases with direct resin in combination with simple orthodontic therapy, occlusal rehabilitation and bleaching where indicated. 

  • Align
  • Bleach
  • Composite Resin
  • Dahl-Type Approach
  • Equilibration

 

What You Will Learn:

  • A simple approach to the direct resin veneer: create masterpieces easily and predictably.
  • Masking discolored teeth with direct resin
  • How to handle the peg lateral and microdont teeth
  • Functional smile design.
  • How to handle complex cases such as discolored and misaligned teeth with direct resin in conjunction with simple short-term orthodontics and home whitening.
