Every patient can afford porcelain, and most people don’t want their teeth “drilled down.” Composite provides fully functional restorations whether it’s a Class IV, diastema closure, shade change, adding length, or any other changes.

This course focuses on a practical and predictable layering technique that can make all of these look beautifully natural. Included will be exactly how to create advanced surface effects like craze lines and hypocalcified spots. The hands-on portion will prepare you to immediately be able to create better composite restorations of all types, so they look more real and last for years.

  • Dramatic Smile Makeovers—why porcelain is not always the best option
  • Verbal skills that will gain patient interest and increase patient acceptance
