“Composite Bonding: The "Ultimate Esthetics" Course”
DR. CORKY WILLHITE
Composite is the most versatile material available for making minor or major changes in dental appearance. With proper technique, the function and longevity of composite rivals porcelain while providing benefits other materials can’t match. So why are so few dentists maximizing this potential? A dentist’s success with basic operative restorations doesn’t always translate into success with more complex freehand restorations and full resin veneers. This comprehensive seminar will benefit each attendee by sharing an organized step-by-step approach that includes operative technique as well as vital diagnostic and marketing skills to achieve “Ultimate Esthetics” with composite bonding.
- Step-by-step procedure for individual tooth changes (color change, Class IV’s, and more)
- How to provide solutions for common problems (worn teeth, diastemas, and more)
- Layering—understand when and why to use each material including tints and opaquers
- Dramatic Smile Makeovers—why porcelain is not always the best option
- Verbal skills that will gain patient interest and increase patient acceptance
- Practical occlusal principles for maximizing longevity
- Contouring and polishing technique for an incredibly natural finish
- Maintenance for many years of happy smiles!
