Hands On Live Event – Introduction to Biomimetic Direct & Indirect Restorations Workshop​

The advancements in adhesive materials & techniques the past 30-years have enabled clinicians to restore severely broken-down teeth back to their natural strength & function (Biomimetics). 

These proven & established adhesive techniques now provide clinicians with the ability to create more natural (Biomimetic) Emergence Profiles with direct restorations including Deep Margin Elevation. 

This 2-day workshop will discuss, demonstrate & practice anterior & posterior direct Biomimetic restorations (black triangles, large restorations) & posterior indirect restorations. 

Advanced, tooth-conserving preparations will also be discussed, demonstrated & practiced. 

Utilization and techniques for plasma treated polyethylene fiber in Biomimetic restorations will also be discussed.
