MINIMALLY INVASIVE ADHESIVE AND ESTHETIC DENTISTRY: A REVIEW OF AVAILABLE TREATMENT OPTIONS & MATERIALS

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

SYNOPSIS:

Nowadays, patients are better informed and more demanding than ever, due to advances in material science, industry-driven marketing and advertising, media's influence in forming public opinion regarding esthetics, and information available on the internet.

A successful dental practice must have a thorough understanding of the available materials and treatment options in all areas of interest to its patients, otherwise the office risks the loss of market share in "want-based dentistry."

The purpose of this clinical and newly designed course is to provide participants with creative solutions to enhance patient's esthetics through the use of minimally invasive dental products and procedures. All treatment options to enhance the patient’s smiles (except indirect procedures) will be reviewed in details.

In addition to extensive technique demonstration, a useful approach on how to incorporate these products and procedures into daily practice will be discussed.
