Day 1 | Morning

Basic introduction to the APT concept
The story of APT (Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporaries)
The story of silicone indexes
The story of the preparation through the APT technique
Basic Analog workflow for the anterior bonded porcelain restorations 

Tooth preparation A to Z by Dr.Gurel (VIDEO)
Designing the smile
Mock up – wax up
Preparing silicon indexes in the lab or chair side
Analyzing the smile with the indexes
Aesthetic Pre-recontouring – APR (if needed)
Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporaries
Evaluation of the aesthetic through APT
Evaluation of the occlusion through APT
Evaluation of the phonetics through APT 

  • tooth preparation through APT 
  • using depth cutters 
  • using extra fine diamond burs 
  • finishing the margins 
  • customising your Arkansas stone burs for finalising gingival margin preparations 
  • using the Sof-Lex paper discs during the preparation 

Handling exposed dentin at the time of the preparation
Impression making – using retraction cords (if needed)
Provisionals (discussing different techniques depending on different indications)
Rechecking the provisionals for aesthetic, functions, phonetics 

Day 1 | Afternoon

Importance of the mock-up (analog-digital)
Presenting the case to the patient – the direct mock up
The mock up as the navigator
The mock up as the diagnostic tool
Classification and different types of direct mock up (for complicated cases) 

The art of the Personalised Smile Design / REBEL
Different personalities ,different choices
Personality traits (Hippocrates)
Different cultures, religions, backgrounds, traditions however a single universal VISUAL LANGUAGE (Carl Jung)
Understanding the basic shapes and their perception
Analysis of the face and personality (simplified for daily clinical evaluation and use)
How to relate the Visual language and the shapes, to the facial anatomy and personality
How to clinically apply the technique

Live REBEL Digital 3D Smile Design
In this LIVE section Dr. Gurel will be demonstrating LIVE on a patient, how to make an Indirect Mock up through the brand new 3D Digital software called REBEL.
A new Smile Design will be created and tried on the patient according to the REBEL proposal. 

The steps for the REBEL software protocol and workflow will be demonstrated; 

  1. Make a very simple mock up ONLY on a CENTRAL, and make a full face picture of the patient 
  2. Digitally scan intra-orally and send the 3D STL file to the REBEL digital wax-up center 
  3. Within less than an hour the 3D STL file of the new smile design proposal will arrive 
  4. Then 3D printed design will be ready for next day 

Day 2 | Morning

  • Additive vs subtractive conditions 
  • How to deal with the protruded teeth
