Anterior Ceramic Restorations

This 3-Day esthetic dentistry course includes hands-on education and training to elevate your anterior ceramic restorations with the biomimetic approach. The course covers all aspects of treatment, from planning through cementation. The course includes hands-on training, artistic exercises, and scientifically supported protocols to enhance both the esthetics and function of your anterior restorations.

Traditional dental procedures rely on preparation designs that accommodate the restorative material or technique. This includes preparation features such as retention and resistance form, as well as tooth reduction to meet the strength requirements of the restorative material instead of prioritizing the preservation of intact tooth structure. As a result, the restored tooth has significant additional preparation and a significantly higher chance of complications such as pain, sensitivity, root canal treatment, recession, and fracture.

In contrast, the Biomimetic approach unites an understanding and appreciation of the biomechanics of natural teeth with principles and techniques which maximize adhesion. These concepts comprise the necessary components to mimic the natural tooth most faithfully. Restorative materials replicate the properties of the dental structures (enamel, dentin, dej) and healthy intact tooth structure is preserved through adhesion without additional preparation requirements. The biomimetically restored tooth mimics the strength, function, and esthetics of natural teeth. Biomimetic restorations include composite fillings, partial coverage restorations (ceramic or resin inlays and onlays), and when necessary, full-coverage ceramic restorations. However, the application technique and material selection makes a significant difference in the performance of these techniques and therefore it is important to have a sound understanding of the science.

SORAYA MAHRAN | LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA headshot

This seminar changed the way I look at dentistry. It made me feel more confident to save more teeth and not to refer patients to the Endodontist or an Oral Surgeon to extract teeth. I recommend this course to every single dentist. I wish this course was taught to us in school from the very beginning.

ADAM MILLER | SAN FRANSISCO, CA headshot

This course is an amazing blend of take-home gems that you can bring directly to your practice and the data, science and literature that helps back everything up. This is the next wave of dentistry, this is how we should be practicing, and to come and get formal training like this is pretty incredible.

DIANA KOPACH | KEW GARDENS, NY headshot

So informative! It's the Dentistry of the future and any dentist whether young or old should feel very comfortable taking this course.

JON MCCLURE | FRISCO, TX headshot

I've had many many patients with hypoplastic, really broken down, six years molars that are normally getting sent for a root canal or crown. Since using biomimetic techniques these patients are just so amazed that teeth that were so sensitive are just like perfectly, great normal teeth. I couldn't be happier.

ANDY, CLAIRE, & CHARLOTTE MARRIOT-SMITH | BAIRNSDALE, AUSTRALIA headshot

We've had 2 or 3 life-changing moments in our dental career, and this course is certainly up there as one of those experiences.

MEREDITH SMEDLEY | ZEELAND, MI headshot

This is changing the way I'll do dentistry. I recommend this course to any dentist, the sooner the better. I wish I had taken this thirteen years ago.

DWAYNE MOORE | COLORADO SPRINGS, CO headshot

Using these biomimetic principles, we are able to do the best for our patients long-term. I would absolutely recommend this course to any dentist who is looking to provide great patient care.
