Class Summary
For many years dentistry has been searching for that magic wand that will create instant esthetic results. The terms universal or chameleon have been used to sell the dentist on the concept that less is better and one size fits all.
As a pioneer of composite bonding, Dr. Bud Mopper has never seen it that way. That is why Cosmedent’s Renamel Restorative System of materials, shades, and handling properties is ideal for what the cosmetic dentist of today wants. Through a systematic approach, Dr Mopper’s concept makes bonding simple for any dentist. That’s the beauty of the Renamel system.
Take this virtual course and we will give you the magic wand to creative esthetic excellence that will rival or exceed any laboratory. It will enhance the lives of you and your patients. The results will blow you away.

  • Simplify bonding techniques in order to achieve consistently reliable results every time.
  • Enhance attendee’s knowledge where each material fits into the bonding procedure. These include: microfills, microhybrids, nanofills, opaquers and tints.

  • Understand how to create invisible and seamless restorations with direct resin bonding every time.
  • Learn how to attain a perfect color match with every restorative procedure, and use a system to deliver that result every time.
  • Discover how to achieve and replicate the finish, polish and appearance of an enamel surface long-term.
  • Learn how to simplify bonding procedures, increase profitability, and enhance satisfaction both for you and your patient.
Class Overview/Schedule


This two-day program will begin with one of the most challenging techniques in cosmetic dentistry – the repair of a large Class IV fracture that is seamless and blends with the other teeth in the arch.  In this presentation, beveling, layering, contouring and polishing techniques will be shared to create completely invisible composite restorations that blend with the contralateral central incisor.

HANDS-ON EXERCISE: Class IV Composte Restoration

  1. Fabrication of an incisal putty matrix
  2. Preparation design from the facial bevel to lingual reduction
  3. Material selection for layering success
  4. Opaquing to hide the fracture zone
  5. Contouring and polishing for seamless transitions from composite to tooth structure



In the morning presentation minimally invasive preparation concepts will be described in detail for composite veneers. Layering with microhybrids, opaquers, tints and microfills will be demonstrated to help the participants understand the steps involved in creating beautiful, naturally esthetic composite veneers. Contouring, finishing and polishing will be further emphasized.

HANDS-ON EXERCISE: Full Resin Veneer

  1. Minimally invasive preparation design for composite veneers
  2. Layering for strength opacity and esthetics
