Ceramic Veneers from A to Z: Intensive Hands-on Workshop

Friday, August 4, 2023 - Sunday, August 6, 2023 from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Ceramic veneers have been a mainstay of long-lasting aesthetic dentistry for more than 40 years, yet they remain a mystery to most dentists due to several factors. During this intensive, three-day, hands-on workshop, Dr. Stevenson will provide you with the knowledge, tools and skills required to set a clear course of mastery in this exciting arena of restorative dentistry. He will discuss variations in preparation design for different types of patients and how and when to implement the following: traditional veneers, super veneers, posterior veneers, vonlays and full ceramic crowns. A heavy emphasis will be placed on hands-on techniques based on clinical studies, which are easily applicable to patient care in your practice.
