This LECTURE is designed for todayʼs esthetically minded, real world dentist and staff. Dr.Margeas will review dozens of direct and indirect clinical cases, step-by-step that are done in real time on an everyday basis. These include: porcelain veneers from preparation, provisionalization, and cementation. Direct composite resin veneers, class IV restorations, diastema closure, peg laterals, and porcelain repair. Learn how to create perfect ovate pontic sites following extraction. Simplified implant techniques and coordinating treatment with your surgeon for immediate extraction, placement, and provisionalization using the patientʼs natural tooth. Treating the worn dentition will be explained with different treatment options. The techniques learned can be incorporated into your practice immediately for increased profitability.
