UPDATE IN ANTERIOR BONDED RESTORATIONS
This course will be an intense lecture program for all practitioners wishing to update their skills in anterior bonded restorations using direct composite resins and indirect porcelain veneers. Although bonded ceramics seem to represent the ultimate biologic, functional, mechanical and aesthetic restoration for compromised anterior teeth, the number of ultraconservative treatment strategies and materials continues to grow. The practitioner is faced with many esthetic treatment modalities and products. The major disadvantage of this evolution is that it becomes increasingly difficult to make the appropriate choices in a given clinical situation. The availability of various treatment alternatives often allows for the selection of an approach that conserves the maximum amount of intact tissue and which complies with the biomimetic principle – Bio-emulation TM. Treatment options should always first include the simplest procedures, such as chemical treatments and freehand composites, and then progress toward more sophisticated approaches, such as laminate veneers.
