Anterior composite treatments involving diastema closure and/or veneers are cases clinicians find difficult. The value of conservative treatment is obvious, but the skill set, and time required often lead some of us to avoid this treatment option. The promise of digital technology is simplification of workflow and predictability of outcomes. This program will introduce participants to a new custom printed matrix which can be used to make these cases more predictable with less chair time.
Participants in this course will gain knowledge in the following areas:
The benefits of conservative anterior composite restorative options.
Introduce a new technology that leverages lab produced digital design and 3D printing.
Understand what types of cases are best accomplished using this matrix.
Identify tips and tricks to success utilizing this 3D printed matrix.
The advantages of using a custom matrix for placement of anterior composites.
Describe the digital and clinical workflows, and how to select cases, when using this new 3D-printed custom matrix
Demonstrate how to achieve esthetic outcomes through a series of clinical case reviews
