In two days, you will learn how to break down the form and color of a central incisor, lateral incisor, and canine in a systematic way. You will learn how to seamlessly restore a Class IV, build up a peg lateral, and direct veneer a canine.

After taking this course, you will have learned how to:

  • Color map and select the correct composite type and shade for artistic layering.
  • Properly reproduce line angles, point angles, embrasures, and macro and micro surface texture.
  • Compose a natural morphological and chromatic depiction of the most important teeth in the smile frame.
