Direct resins in the anterior dentition can produce functional, highly aesthetic long- lasting restorations, which are conservative of tooth structure. However, with the rise of aesthetic dentistry in the media, the public as consumers are becoming increasingly discerning: they expect and demand the best.

Dr. Smithson aims to unravel and demystify concepts such as shade selection and micro and macro-anatomy and pull them together into a simple step-by-step protocol which includes diagnostics, preparation, composite placement and finishing, allowing the average practitioner to achieve outstanding results on a consistent basis.

What You Will Learn
• Shade selection: demystify the science and use it as a practical everyday tool.
• Translucency, opacity and opalescence: why all composite resin is not created equal.
• A simple, rapid, yet novel concept to make incisal edge shade and effects obvious and effortless.
• How to quickly and inexpensively fabricate diagnostic mock-ups and palatal silicone indices to achieve precise incisal edge position.
• Preparation design and instrumentation to realize durable resin restorations, which have margins invisible to the human eye.
• Opaque dentin shades: when and where to use them…and why.
• Simple, intuitive finishing protocols, which allow the operator to produce highly, polished restorations, which mimic natural enamel.
• How to layer resin to create lifelike incisal halos and effects such as crack lines and opacities.
And much, much more……………
