Abstract

Immediately post COVID-19, we will undoubtedly see a drop in people seeking elective cosmetic treatment except for our younger patients. Appearance and self-esteem have long been intertwined. So, as our social media and selfie culture continues to grow, it’s no surprise that more and more young people and adolescents are seeking out cosmetic dentistry, actually in record numbers, as a way to enhance their appearances. While parents may postpone their own elective procedures, they will seek treatment for their children. We need to respond with conservative ways to satisfy our younger patient’s desires for ideal smiles. This course will look at cosmetic dental issues that are of particular concern to our teenage and young adult patients:  tooth color and staining issues, post orthodontic refinement of smiles, spacing and crowding, misshapen teeth, and soft tissue considerations. Conservative options and step by step treatment will be discussed for direct composite bonding, direct composite veneers, and minimal prep indirect veneers. Boost their confidence and boost your bottom line.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate an awareness of conservative treatment options for teenager and young adult patients who desire enhancement to their smiles
