Failures in dentistry are frequently blamed on materials, but in reality, many times, we, the dentist, are the culprit. We treat the anterior teeth as cosmetic challenges, and we forget to look at the relationship of form and function. This presentation will simplify occlusion by combining dental-facial treatment planning in combination with function. By applying a few basic principles, we can create a predictable bite to support the joint and the muscles and design the proper amount of vital space for our restorations. This innovative, fast pace course will explore aesthetics that are BUILT TO LAST.

Course Description:

  • Learn how to diagnose and treatment plan an aesthetic case
  • Evaluate the patient’s incisor position and morphology, their dento-facial requirements, and Implement the techniques to determine the appropriate vertical dimension.
  • Understand how mastering these techniques and marketing the cosmetic results can thrust your practice to the top 1%
