About the course

When a patient presents with multiple aesthetic issues: worn teeth, discoloured teeth, peg laterals; where do you begin?

How long should the teeth be? Where should you position the incisal edge? What is the effect on the lip support and phonetics?

Errors in these areas often result in patient dissatisfaction and costly retreatments.

This class offers a simple predictable step-by-step approach using Facial Generated Treatment Planning (FGTP) to create a diagnostic mock up either digitally or in wax; this is then mocked up in the mouth for aesthetics, function, and phonetics (speech) and then removed and finally duplicated in direct composite resin in the patient’s mouth.

Our process is planning> mock up> test-drive> restore.

This approach means that we begin with both the dentist and patient on the same page which results in increased satisfaction for the patient and reduced stress for the dentist. Complaints and retreatment become a thing of the past.

This comprehensive class takes the delegate from initial consultation to final delivery of direct composite restorations using a biomimetic approach on worn teeth, discoloured teeth, and a peg lateral.

What You Will Learn:

  • Functional Smile Design- how to simply create a predictable roadmap for your aesthetic dentistry which is personalised to each patient and is harmonious aesthetically and occlusally.

  • A predictable and approach to reconstruct Tooth Surface Loss and create functional occlusions with direct resin.

  • How to manage a peg lateral with direct composite and create a “wow” restoration with natural incisal edge effects.

  • Tooth discoloration: white and brown spots and the non-vital tooth. How to manage these issues.

Friday Morning

Theory Part

The therotical part will equip the delegates with usefull theoretical knowledge to use in the different hands-on sessions.

Among other things we will look at diffrent kinds of materials, equipment and techniques sprinkled with some nice tips and tricks to be used in general for the hands-on sessions.

Friday Afternoon

Hands-on Part 1

Restore a peg lateral incisor with direct resin using a simple, elegant approach which is predictable and confers significant time-saving advantages over traditional layering protocols.

Saturday Morning

Hands-on Part 2

Mask and restore a discoloured upper lateral incisor using direct resin using varying opacities of resin to mask the discoloration yet maintain a lifelike level of translucency.

Saturday Afternoon

Hands-on Part 3

Create an attractive intra-oral mock up in minutes: modify the mock up effortlessly and use it to fabricate a palatal stent.

Restore a central incisor with TSL : a buccal and palatal direct resin veneer.

This class is extremely practical and has a heavy hands-on element.
