Dr. David Chan
Creative Techniques to Experience The Esthetic Possibilities Of Using Anterior Composites In More Ways Than One With Everyday Dentistry … Predictably.
Day 3: 7:30am - 9:30am
When taken to the highest level of excellence, direct anterior composite restorations can command an esthetic outcome that is extremely conservative and predictable, yet able to exist in harmony with natural teeth.
This course will help participants understand the criteria to achieve a higher level of composite artistry with results that can seamlessly emulate natural teeth or rival the beauty of porcelain restorations by learning the concepts of both anterior composites and their restorative applications. Dr. Chan will cover the fundamentals of composites pertaining to the physical and optical properties of resins including strength, predictable shade selection recipes, tooth morphology as well as simple but very effective polishing techniques. The nuance that makes a restoration average verses exceptional based on the restorative goal will be presented in detail.
This course will be using composites to restore a peg lateral incisor in real time from beginning to end and discussion of other innovative ways to use composite resins such as temporization of dental implants or the duplication of the soft tissue architecture with composites.
- Learn the details of how to create shade selection recipes for any shade scenarios, tints and opaquers to mitigate color correction and other pearls that ensure consistent results
- Learn how to restore a peg lateral incisor predictably that emulate nature
- Learn how to use nominative techniques to use composites to shape soft tissue for anterior dental implants
- Learn how to use composites to replicate soft tissue architecture for a predictable outcome with anterior implant crowns
- Learn very simple work flows to recreate primary, secondary and tertiary anatomy
Who Should Attend:
This course is specifically designed to expose the dentist to the fundamental concepts and understandings that are necessary to restore a peg lateral incisor with composites and how this material can also be used as an adjunct to anterior implant restorations.

Dr. Nate Lawson
Materials and Techniques to Improve Class II Composites
Day 3: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Class II composite restorations remain the bread and butter procedure of many general dentists. Although this procedure may seem trivial, there are many factors which lead to a long-lasting restoration, including diagnosis, isolation, caries removal, cavity preparation, use of liner, matrix and wedge placement, bonding technique, composite placement, and finishing and polishing. This course aims to review the techniques for each of these steps based on current evidence.
- Discuss treatment guidelines for interproximal caries and caries removal endpoints
- Discover materials and techniques to promote a long lasting adhesive bond and create a well-adapted restoration
- Analyze matrix utilization and contouring instruments to achieve a tight and well-contoured contact
Who Should Attend:
Clinicians interested in learning clinical tips and techniques for eliminating common problems associated with routine clinical procedures.
