Esthetic “out-side-in and in-side-out” analysis presented in this course will create outcomes that are predictable and visually appealing. Achievement of optimal esthetic outcomes will result in a healthy, harmonious and pleasant smile. Dr. Macedo will pave the way for you to accomplish such results for your patients through the exploration of three-dimensional analysis combined with a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. You will learn how to diagnose and overcome roadblocks to successful treatment. This will create long-term esthetic harmony between the final restorations you place and the adjacent teeth.
This presentation will review specific parameters for clinical techniques including contemporary esthetic materials, ceramic veneers, all-ceramic systems, computer-generated ceramic restorations, periodontal and implant esthetic considerations.
At the end of the presentation you will be able to accurately:
- Perform smile design and analysis
- Overcome potential issues with optical illusion
- Obtain consistent optimal tooth preparation
- Perform ceramic selection for each clinical situation (implant and tooth borne)
- Perform predictable cementation and/or bonding
