The maxillary central incisors are the dominant elements in the smile frame. Achieving perfect symmetry in shape and color constitutes the cornerstone for free-hand composite veneers. The first and most significant challenge is restoring central incisors presenting uneven substrate colors to achieve a perfect shade match. The second equally important challenge is finishing and polishing them to attain perfect anatomy to mimic the natural dentition. In this course, Dr. Fahl will guide you through selecting the correct restorative composites, including opaquers and tints, and layering them accordingly to achieve veneers that defy detection.

Dr. Fahl looked at each person’s work every step of the way.
I have taken over 1,500 continuing education hours over my career as a dentist. This was my first experience at Cosmedent. I had the pleasure of taking a course by Dr Newton Fahl. After the class, I was able to transfer the skills I learned over the weekend and apply those skills immediately on Monday. Highly recommend!
Dr. Fahl explained things in a new, eye-opening way.
