Many smile makeovers can be accomplished with composite, and if the doctor has learned the skills, this can be a great option for patients. Conserving almost all of the tooth structure is a big advantage of using composite. The longevity of composite bonding can be 10 years or more, and they are easier to repair of modify than ceramic restorations.
Many patients can’t afford porcelain veneers, and it’s great to give patients a less expensive choice. These restorations can look as good as porcelain, and Transitional Bonding is a more basic option that can save patients even more. And function doesn’t have to be compromised since composite can withstand normal occlusal forces just like ceramic and natural teeth.
For members of the AACD, this course is designed specifically to help with the challenges of the “six or more direct resin veneers” case — arguably the toughest of all the Accreditation case types.
Although no course can guarantee passing Accreditation, this course will cover Case Type 5 from case selection to completion. Not only should that increase your chances of success with your Accreditation case, but it should also help you satisfy any demanding patient who wants the most conservative cosmetic dentistry available.
