Composite Artistry: Take Your Anterior Composites To The Next Level
Hands-on course
04 Nov 2017, 10:30 - 17:30 Dubai, UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry

Abstract

A thorough understanding of anterior tooth anatomy is fundamental to providing high quality anterior composite restorations. In this hands-on, I will introduce a predictable protocol that will allow you to check your work. We will discuss margin designs to allow the complete integration of your composite restorations with the natural tooth to achieve that perfect match time after time. Finally, a predictable finishing and polishing protocol to present your composite for that perfect aesthetic result. The day will be “doing” work with a very hands-on approach which will allow each delegate to take away practical tips that will enhance your dentistry straight from DAY ONE. Dentistry is a hands-on job; this day will reflect my beliefs- practical, enjoyable & educational.
