This in-your-office, hands-on exercise will teach you to build up peg laterals.  Direct resin composites are a very important part of any dental practice nowadays.  These restorations provide patients with minimally invasive restorations that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, longevity, and function.  The participants will be guided step-by-step through shade selection, tooth preparation, bonding, matrix adaptation, creating proximal contacts, layering, contouring, and polishing to build up peg laterals conservatively, predictably, and successfully utilizing direct resin composite.

Who Should Attend This Course:

  • General Esthetic Dentists
  • RRDH (Dental Hygienists with a designation to perform Restorative procedures)

Course Outcomes & Hands-On Learning Objectives

  • Learn shade selection for resin composites.
  • Adapt proximal matrices for ideal contour.

Dr. Lana Weibel's testimonial for Hands-OnLine LIVE course

Dr. Lana Waibel

Ambler, PA

“The virtual hands-on course by Dr. Vargas was absolutely awesome! Such great value with getting a kit full of products and instruments plus having a live hands-on course with the world-renowned educator – there is nothing else out there like this! Being a cosmetic dentist doing bonding on a daily basis, I took out quite a bunch of helpful tips that I could implement right away.”
