Composite bonding is an art form like any other that involves attention to detail. We’ll start our experience in the 2-dimensional world and then take it to the 3-D world of contour, color, and creativity. Spend two days learning to see teeth differently and at a unique depth of detail taught by a few. Through the use of 10 exercises, each participant will build on seeing, understanding, and implementation skills. No matter your skill level, this course promises to enhance your level of composite artistry.

Learn how to attain unparalleled composite results using Dr. LeSage’s 3D Characterized Layering Technique as published in a 19-page chapter in the Dental Clinics of North America 2007. When done following along with Dr. LeSage on a highly specialized typodont, this technique will assure each participant can attain highly esthetic outcomes. Prove to yourself you have the skills to fabricate restorations that rival even the most skilled master ceramists. Join us! I hope you will accept the composite challenge.
