Course Description

Ceramic restorations have long been considered the optimal choice for predictable aesthetics and longevity. “Bonding” has been considered a short-term solution that can be both technically challenging and aesthetically unpredictable. The injection molding technique with ultra-thin Bioclear anatomic tooth forms has created a “Third Modality” with monolithic restorations that can endure and sparkle for decades.

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:

  • Deep Class II and Class III restorations leveraging selective caries removal,
    radius bevel design, injection molding basics and the 3-step Rock Star Polish.
  • Deep Class II and Class III restorations leveraging selective caries removal, radius bevel design, injection molding basics and the 3-step Rock Star Polish.
  • An update of Black Triangle treatments will be demonstrated and performed. The all new Black Triangle
    Treatment System will be introduced that has simplified treatment of maxillary black triangles with monolithic
    injection over molding to rejuvenate the aging and post-ortho tooth.
  • Midline Diastema closure using special Diastema Closure matrices and updated technique to assure tight and broad contact, symmetrical teeth, and aggressive emergence profile to stimulate immediate papilla
    generation.
  • Quadrant treatment of Class II composites.
