Course Description: NF501
2 HOURS | 2 CE CREDITS
AGD Subject Code: 250
This Hands-On Demand™ course will introduce and discuss the use of composite resins for addressing anterior esthetic challenges through a direct-indirect approach, in which restorations are directly sculpted and indirectly bonded. The technique congregates the artistry and the layering concepts of direct composites with the advantages of indirect protocols. The benefits of the technique include high-quality margins and optimized control of form and final color with luting resins, in addition to being a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. During this Hands-On Demand program, participants will perform each step of this technique through to completion, with demonstrations by the instructor.
Who Should Attend This Course:
- General Esthetic Dentists
- RRDH (Dental Hygienists with a designation to perform Restorative procedures)
Course Outcomes & Hands-On Learning Objectives
- Understanding the role of direct-indirect composite veneers as a viable alternative to direct composites and ceramic veneers.
- Using “contact-lenses” and veneers to predictably change the form and colour of the esthetically compromised dentition.
- Optimizing results with greater operative control to avoid colour mismatches and potential remakes.
