Direct veneers, peg lateral and diastema closing restorations
Hands-on Courses
20-21 May 2021, 09:00 - 18:00 Online and CAPP Training Institute, Dubai Area of interest: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry


Face-to-Face Training CAPP Training Institute Dubai (full day) Online Theory & Online Live Demonstration (full day)


The course will cover the necessary knowledge to know what to do when spaces, stains or undesirable forms are present in the anterior region. First, the participants will evaluate the model and plan how to prepare, if necessary. Afterwards, the participants will prepare the teeth and will have to restore them one by one keeping the proportions. Several techniques for closing diastemas, restoring peg laterals, large class IV and direct veneers will be shown. The pulling technique, the reverse pulling technique, the FEM technique and the Wing technique will be explained in detail. All will be based on the 3x5 concept. The Hands-on will finish with the demonstration of finishing and polishing.

All the steps will be shown by the instructor with an HD camera with high magnification for the explanation of all the details. 

The course will focus on how to deal with diastemas, stains, hypomineralized spot, tetracycline stains, etc in a simple, minimally invasive and predictable way. It will also give guidelines regarding the choice of materials. It will present a simplified layering concept and discuss the limitations of them. The aesthetic potential of ceramics and composites will be shown, the advantages of new materials and last improvements in their optical properties will be described. It will be based on many fully documented clinical cases in HD quality, with step by step procedures, showing what is really possible to achieve and the limitations of novel techniques.
