Dr. Marty Zase
Cosmetic Pearls for the General Practitioner
Designed to help dentists who want to include more cosmetic dentistry procedures in their practices, this lecture gives many tips on how to do cosmetic dentistry better and more efficiently. Subjects covered include adhesive and microdentistry techniques to eliminate all sensitivity in posterior composites, zero sensitivity bleaching, invisible restorations of fractured incisors, undetectable porcelain onlays, smile design, cementing and opaquing tips, porcelain veneers, laboratory communications, natural looking bridges with ovate pontics, and patient communications for success.
Often we defer doing cosmetic procedures because we don’t know how to fix potential problems, so several suggestions have also been included on what to do when things go wrong. Many quick tips and techniques are also incorporated to help select the best products and how to use them to get predictable successful results.
Course goal: to raise the dentist’s confidence in doing and presenting cosmetic dentistry.
