Smile Design and Ceramic Restoration in Esthetic Restorative and Implant Dentistry
Prior to this course, participants must possess the basic skill, knowledge, and understanding of ceramic restoration in esthetic restorative and implant dentistry.
High esthetic expectations and the addition of implant therapy have only increased the challenge. It is, therefore, necessary for clinicians and technicians to fully understand all the available options and limitations as well as where, when and how to best utilize them.
The goal is to design a smile that fits the patient’s functional, biological and emotional needs. Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome does not live up to the patient esthetic expectations.
The protocol that is presented will improve the esthetic diagnosis, the communication and the predictability of anterior ceramic restorations.
