"Minimally Invasive Adhesive and Esthetic Indirect Anterior Bonded Restorations"
DR. ABDI SAMENI
The objective of this course is to take a clinical approach and familiarize the practitioner with all aspects of bonded porcelain restorations. This course will demonstrate that not only can bonded porcelain restorations be used to enhance the esthetic appearance of teeth, but they can also be used therapeutically to regain strength of teeth that have been weakened due to enamel loss.
- Learn biologically respectful treatment planning – the biomimetic principles.
- Learn smile design principles from nature, not formulas.
- Learn to combine composite and porcelain restorations to preserve and protect the intact tooth.
- Learn new approaches and applications for bonded porcelain restorations.
- Learn an ideal approach for “near perfect” results when implants have to be restored next to natural teeth in the esthetic zone.
