Esthetic Series: Anterior Direct Composite Bonding
October 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT$399 – $599
Fundamental principles for polychromatic layering to seamlessly blend with nature
Composite resin chemistry is becoming more and more versatile and predictable. Proper use of these new composites can be so esthetic that they literally disappear within the surrounding dentition. The question is, “how do I do it?” “How many layers do I need?” “Are they worth it?” Using high definition clinical photography and videos, Dr. Brown and Dr. Gillespie will review several products and techniques from the latest composite systems and guide you in a personal hands-on setting to teach you how to replicate each layer of natural tooth structure. Attendees will leave feeling more educated about the latest products to hit the market, simplified techniques, and increased confidence in their ability to predictably create beautiful anterior restorations.
