SYNOPSIS:

Porcelain veneers have become a popular procedure. However, without comprehensive and sequential esthetic evaluation, diagnosis, material selection, treatment plan and execution, the successful outcome is compromised. Supragingival dentistry techniques have made this procedure easier and more predictable than ever before. Dr. Ruiz will explain how correct preparation technique affects the selection of restorative porcelain material, based on specific case needs. He will also show how to achieve adequate balance of translucency and strength needed for excellent margin blending for supra-gingival or para-gingival margins. A logical approach for choosing the correct cement and bonding systems for predictable results will also be presented.

Additionally, to predictably achieve patient satisfaction, it is imperative to have excellent communication with the patients, understand their unique esthetic perspective and goals, and systematically blend it with the operator’s esthetic preferences and goals. Furthermore, before any case is initiated, it is imperative to properly diagnose the etiology of the condition requiring esthetic treatment. It is crucial to diagnose “occlusal disease” as it is often a major cause of a shorter life span of restorations.

In this course, a practical clinical approach to implement smile design and occlusion to diagnosis and treatment planning of porcelain veneers will be presented.

  • Know how to safely restore severely worn out incisal edges
