This Dawson Academy continuing education esthetics course is a hands-on program that will assist the cosmetic dentist in taking those critical steps in accomplishing anterior restorative procedures at their highest level. Restoring anterior teeth and managing dental esthetics with predictability, truly represents the culmination of our understanding of how this intricate system is designed as we attempt to emulate what nature has originally created. Through the use of lecture, clinical videos, and hands-on exercises the restorative dentist will develop the confidence in diagnosis, material selection, preparation design and the creation of key indices to insure predictability in delivering exquisite anterior restorations. The clinician will have the opportunity to transition the knowledge gained in the “2D” treatment planning mode into a “3D” dental blue print through the use of mounted diagnostic models and the minimal wax technique. The modulation and understanding of Smile Design in an advanced level of dental treatment planning affords the ability to begin with the end in mind, creating an esthetic result that reflects a functionally sound design and insures durability. ,The critical information obtained in creating this dental blue print will allow for the fabrication of reduction guides and provisional matrixes to increase your efficiency, productivity and accuracy chairside. We also provide some key concepts in the single most important step in insuring predictability in indirect restoration, creating exquisite prototypes. Special emphasis will be placed on contouring the provisional restoration, and why this is key to long-term functional and esthetic success in every case you perform. Finally, we will discuss with you in detail the cementation and adhesive options so that the proper course of action is matched with each material. ,The prime focus of this program is to provide the essential skills and protocols to enhance the clinicians’ ability to create beautiful anterior restorations. ,Objectives Topics: • Delineate the key concepts of Smile Design relative to Global, Macro, and Micro criteria and their assessment related to function and phonetics. • Describe the skill in creating a “Dental Blue” that will enable the production of key indices and stents that will facilitate preparation and provisionalization. • Explain the fluid concepts of preparation design as it relates to functional needs, esthetics, and the parameters of new materials. • Develop an effective and efficient provisionalization technique. • List the key elements related to the assessment of the prototypes to ensure predictability in the final restorations. • Outline laboratory communication to ensure a predictable result. • Summarize the concepts of adhesion and the clinical protocol in the luting of final restorations.
