Mastering Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry

Download Flyer

Aesthetic dentistry is where artistic form meets functional restorative dentistry. Where patients, clinicians, specialists and laboratory technicians communicate with each other in an effective way and each provide input contributing to the success of the treatment.

Accomplishing exquisite all ceramic restorative results is a combination of preparation technique, materials selection and technical execution. We will walk through the process from beginning (treatment planning) to the end (seating the restorations). Tips for technical success and the knowledge to execute these cases with exquisite results will be presented.

If dental aesthetics is the subject, digital photography is the language used to communicate with all members of the team. Artistic lighting and good photography techniques set you apart as a clinician or dental ceramist. We will teach both intra-oral and portrait photography techniques that will allow you to present the best possible images of the work you complete on your patients. We will have fun practicing this on each other!

And today, aesthetics dentistry is where the newest digital design technology meets the latest restorative materials utilizing 3D printing and advanced milling capability to plan and optimize form, function and overall esthetics for our patients.
