Elevate Your Composite Skills to Replicate Nature

The Art of Resin: Creating Beauty by Recreating Nature

This hands-on course will prepare you to create better, natural-looking composite restorations of all types that will last for years to come.

Two Days of Workshops

This hands-on course will immerse attendees into the world of composite resins!

Day 1

  • Anatomy of anterior teeth – morphology (transitional and incisal line angles, embrasures, developmental grooves, light-reflected areas, and light-deflected areas)
  • Important factors for the longevity of composite veneers
  • Finishing and Polishing protocol (macrotexture and microtexture)
  • Optical and mechanical principles of composite resins
  • Planning our cases
  • Masking dark substrates
  • Use of opaques and tints
  • The direct veneer on a worn incisor – upper central incisor (reproducing halos, translucency, incisal effects, lifelike results)
  • Direct veneer on a dark tooth – (using opaques and tints to create depth and details)
Day 2

  • Advanced clinical cases
  • Closing diastemas and peg laterals
  • Cervical management to achieve periodontal health
  • Maintaining the shine and smoothness of composite resins
  • Importance of canine guidance
  • Restoring a peg lateral tooth – reproducing nature
  • The direct veneer on an upper canine – occlusion considerations

This course has not only changed the way I perform my composites but the way I will approach all of my dentistry. I have never felt more inspired to go to work on Monday! This was a GAME CHANGER

Meet the Instructor

Rhodri Thomas

Undeniably committed to his career, Rhodri believes it is his background as an artist that has spurred on his love of esthetic dentistry. As a landscape painter, his eye for color and composition transfers from the canvas into his dental work, recreating the natural landscapes of the mouth. Rhodri lectures and teaches internationally on the subject of esthetics, presenting at conferences or running courses across the globe, and publishes articles in leading dental magazines. He has gone on to be three times winner of Best Young Dentist at British Dentistry Awards alongside a national award for his research. He was the instructor for a worldwide online composite course and is now founder of The Art of Dentistry courses and co-founder of Art2aesthetics a new series of unique training programs and esthetic-based training courses for dentists. He believes every clinician has a natural creative ability inside of them and enjoys nothing more than helping to ignite it.
