Course Description

The course will cover the necessary knowledge to know what to do when spaces are present in the anterior region. First, the participants will evaluate the model and plan how to prepare, if necessary. Afterwards, they will prepare the teeth and then they will have to restore them one by one keeping the proportions. Several techniques for closing diastemas will be shown. The pulling technique, the reverse pulling technique, the FEM technique and the Wing technique will be explained in detail. 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.
