Hands-on course
08 May 2016, 09:00 - 18:00 Dubai, UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry

Course Outline

  • Understanding classic indications of composites and their survival
  • Understanding the last improvements in material science and the treatment possibilities they are opening
  • Preparing properly for a direct veneer and decide when and when not close a diastema with composites
  • Understanding the challenges of diastemas and their functional limitations
  • Using the polychromatic approach for anterior direct restorations
  • Performing advanced anterior restorations like dicult class IV, direct veneers, peg laterals and diastema closure with a novel technique
