Composites, resins, veneers – 3 modern approaches

Hear three specialists present on planning for complex cases.

Injectable Resin Veneers

Presented by Mr Russell Young

Digital Dentistry has introduced many new techniques and methodologies in recent years that need to be mastered by the modern dentist.

Digital Smile Design and Injectable Resin Veneers are such techniques. In this presentation you will learn all aspects of injectable composite resin veneers from case selection to materials, techniques and finishing.

Learn to understand:

  • diagnostics of ideal cases for Injectable Resin Veneers (IRV)
  • complete photo protocol requirements for IRV
  • steps in completing an IRV case
  • pros and cons of IRV.

Includes a printed guide.

Direct composite aesthetics

Presented by Dr Terry Wong

Composite resin can provide the patient with an aesthetic alternative to porcelain veneers with little or no tooth preparation. Dr Terry Wong will discuss what it takes to deliver long lasting restorations, since his experience is such that he has reviewed his own work in later years.

At the conclusion of this session, you will be abe to:

  • better understand what is required to deliver aestetic direcct composite resin veneers
  • identify the important steps to deliver long lasting restorations
  • improve practical skills in delivering beautiful CR veneers.

Non digital aesthetics - wax up and inject

Presented by Professor Ian Meyers

Injection moulding techniques (IMT) utilising translucent silicone templates and high strength injectable composite resins have enabled IMT to become an essential part of everyday restorative practice for all clinicians. This presentation will demonstrate and evaluate the use of IMT for simple and complex restorative situations and assess the outcomes through a range of clinical cases.  Clinical tips and tricks on how to achieve improved aesthetic and functional success will be presented and discussed.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will:

  • appreciate the benefits of IMT for the reconstruction of anatomical form and function for simple and complex cases
  • understand appropriate case selection and preparation for restoration
  • recognise the benefits and limitations of a range of contemporary direct restorative materials.

CPD hours: 6 clinical hours
