Aesthetics Always Matter

At this course we will focus on shape, shape is one of the most important parts of aesthetic dentistry. If you don't get the shape right, the tooth will never look right.

You will complete composite resin fillings using various techniques. You will learn about tooth morphology and how embrasures affect how teeth look. You will learn free hand techniques that will give your patients the aesthetic results they desire.

In addition, you will prep anterior teeth for crowns using various methods.

You will finish hours of live hands-on learning and have a better understanding of how to create composite resin fillings and crown preps on anterior teeth.

You will be faster, more confident and enjoy your dentistry more.
