TOPIC: Composite Veneers and Class IV

VENUE: Edina Country Club, 5100 Wooddale Ave, Edina

Course Outline:
This course will help participants achieve a higher level of composite artistry with results that can seamlessly emulate natural teeth or rival the beauty of porcelain restorations by learning the concepts of both anterior composites and advanced restorative applications. Dr. Chan will cover the fundamentals from a myriad of composite systems, the physical and optical properties of resins and manufacturer differences including strength, translucency, predictable shade selection, tooth morphology, and polishing techniques. The nuances that make a restoration average or exceptional such as color theory and composite selection based on the restorative goal will be presented in detail. The course will discuss the polychromatic nature of natural human teeth and how composite resins can be used to emulate that polychromatic appearance effortlessly and predictably.

This will include using putty matrices and learning advanced diastema closing techniques. Dr. Chan will demonstrate these skills with photographic examples of actual before and after composite cases. Have you ever wanted to be able to ask YOUR FAQs about composites? How do you prevent voids and how to make them disappear? Best method of shade matching? Treat and prevent post-op sensitivity? Correct poor shade matching? Now is your chance to learn composite artistry from an AACD Accredit Cosmetic Dentist.
