Direct aesthetic dentistry: new materials and techniques for anterior restorations
Hands-on Courses
14-15 Sep 2023, 09:00 - 18:00 CAPP Training Institute | Dubai | UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Restorative Dentistry


Face-to-Face Training | CAPP Training Institute Dubai (full day)


For many years, “Aesthetics” in Operative Dentistry has been taught as something more artistic than scientific. Often, is left for many dentists the feeling that there’s a lack of information, one that might help planning and to execute cases with reliability, predictability, and, why not, serenity.

What this course proposes is to change the concept that Esthetics is purely artistic and empiric.

Nowadays it is possible to work with an emphasis on aesthetic procedures in an ethical way, having in mind the patient’s whole oral health, and having by our side predictability of results sustained by scientific evidence, always under the precepts of minimally invasive Dentistry.

It is important to understand the patient’s complaints, and also know what are the techniques and materials that we currently have available.

Regarding any aesthetic rehabilitation, we must always focus on Minimally Invasive Dentistry. For the dentist that aspires to advanced aesthetic procedures with dental composites, it is paramount to know deeply the properties of both composite and tooth; more specifically theirs mechanical and optical properties. This knowledge depends not only on the immediate behavior of the material but also on the reliability of a long-lasting restoration. Furthermore, only by knowing the composite, we will be able to identify which materials would be able to reproduce even the smallest anatomical and optical details of the natural tooth.
