Description

This two-part course illustrates a frequently underused and underestimated type of dentistry.  Direct composite resin restoration is often a second thought when one considers the treatment modalities available to them. Given the conservative nature of direct bonding many patients will select it over veneers or other options.  Some consider it a lost art over taken by a faster more durable form of cosmetic dentistry.  However, Dr. Willhite shares his philosophy on why it should be considered and shares information regarding the longivety and strength of direct resin.  This course covers conservative preparation design, adhesive placement techniques, cosmetic contouring and finishing of anterior and posterior direct composite resin restorations.
