Class Summary

Composite resin restorations, traditionally considered a secondary treatment to porcelain, are emerging as a preferred treatment option in the anterior region. When well executed, this artistic and highly versatile treatment option provides patients with a minimally invasively, esthetically pleasing and time efficient treatment alternative.

This 2 days, predominately hands on, composite artistry course will provide you with a working knowledge of material properties, an intimate appreciation of smile design principles and teach you the art of layering and polishing composite to achieve remarkable restorations which harmonize invisibly into the surrounding dentition.
