Predictable Aesthetics and Longevity with Bonded Porcelain Restorations

Jan 15-18, 2015

This course is a unique hands-on opportunity to upgrade your skills in anterior bonded restorations. Esthetics and function are equal concerns in restor­ati­ons. However, the excessive strength of conventional prosthetic crowns can transfer tremendous stress to the roots and can result in root fractures. Therefore, the modula­tion of strength should be considered to avoid catastrophic failures.

Participants will learn:

» Modern concepts in restorative dentistry with new solutions » How the combination of both composites and ceramics reproduce the original stiffness of a tooth

The benefit for you:

» Receive clear answers and guidelines to your specific questions » Return to your practice as a more enthusiastic and confident professional » Provide the best possible treatment for your patients

Raise your esthetic restorative dentistry to the highest level.
