New Horizons in Esthetic Adhesive Dentistry
The restorative team should be able to provide patients with minimally invasive, highly esthetic, and long-lasting restorative solutions. Novel esthetic procedures allow the clinician to select among a variety of treatment designs based upon the patient needs. The potential for successful esthetic outcome and its limitations must be identified before the selection of appropriate treatment plan and materials. This presentation provides a systematic and scientific approach for selecting esthetic treatment based on research data generated at the Division of Restorative Sciences, Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of University of Southern California.
- Gain awareness to assess esthetic restorative materials to achieve successful results
- Understand how minimally invasive treatment can be applied to compromised dentition
- Learn how to select the right treatment from a plethora of esthetic solutions
