Achieve a Higher Level of Artistry with Anterior Composites
March 21-23, 2019
September 5-7, 2019
This course will help participants 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 advanced restorative applications. Dr. Chan will cover the fundamentals from a myriad of composite systems, the physical and optical properties of resins and manufacturer differences including strength, translucency, predictable shade selection, tooth morphology, polishing techniques. The nuances that make a restoration average or exceptional such as color theory and composite selection based on the restorative goal will be presented in detail. The course will discuss the polychromatic nature of natural human teeth and how composite resins can be used to emulate that polychromatic appearance effortlessly and predictably. In the hands-on sessions, participants will have the opportunity to watch Dr. Chan walk through each skill step by step in a state of the art audio video facility while the participants work on their custom made models. This will include using putty matrices and learning advanced diastema closing techniques. Dr. Chan will demonstrate these skills with photographic examples of actual before and after composite cases. Have you ever wanted to be able to ask YOUR FAQs about composites? How do you prevent voids and how to make them disappear? Best method of shade matching? Treat and prevent post-op sensitivity? Correct poor shade matching? Now is your chance to learn composite artistry from an AACD Accredited cosmetic dentist. Participants may submit questions prior to the course and Dr. Chan will answer!
Objectives: Learn fundamental properties of "many" different types of composite systems. Learn details of shade selection, tints and opaquers and other pearls that ensure consistent results. Learn how to create polychromatic composite restorations that emulate nature and rival porcelain. Learn contouring and polishing techniques to create exceptional composite restorations. Prepare candidates for passing the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Accreditation section with composite case IV and case V.
