"Mastering Anterior Composites I" (4 CE)

Course Description:

This intensive hands-on course focus on the latest direct anterior composite restorations protocols. This program will give you the knowledge and experience to perfect composite restorations. You will gain skills in layered composite and pull-through techniques for composite veneers and Class IV, stress-free isolation techniques, diagnostic mock up, and effective finishing and polishing techniques. You will be able to understand how to incorporate long lasting and tooth-like direct composite to your daily practice as a reliable alternative to ceramic while practicing minimally invasive. Drs. Oliveira-Haas and faculty will provide over-the-shoulder mentoring. This team of very skilled faculty members will provide guidance for an intensive patient simulation experience. Outstanding handouts with step-by-step for simulated practices will be provided, as well as classic literature articles. You will refine your composite resin skills and will learn the lasted techniques to immediately apply them to your patients and enhance your clinical performance.

  1. Learning Objectives – Lecture
  • Treatment planning esthetic cases and designing the smile.
  • How to use wax-up and mock-ups to communicate with patients and increase case acceptance.
  • Overview of adhesive dentistry. Latest information of adhesive selection. Etch and rinse versus self adhesive systems. What’s new?
  • What is the best composite for anterior restorations? Understand how to select the appropriate type of composite for each clinical situation.
  • How to use layering technique to decrease chair time.
  • Finishing and polishing to achieve enamel-like restorations and save chair time.
  1. Learning Objectives – Hands-On
  • Fabricate silicone index for anterior composites.
  • Class IV using layering technique advanced and simplified techniques.
  • Create incisal halo and incisal effects.
  • Direct composite veneer for anterior teeth (teeth #7 to 10).
  • Finishing and polishing step-by-step using effective and simplified techniques.
