Smile Reconstruction Using Porcelain Veneers: A Hands-on Workshop

Saturday, January 25, 2020 - Sunday, January 26, 2020, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.



In this two-day, hands-on course, you will learn how to show your patients exactly what their new smile will look like through advanced case presentation techniques and how to deliver beautiful restorations. These skills will give you an increased feeling of confidence and pride with your veneer cases.


Who Should Attend:

This is an intermediate-level, porcelain veneer course designed for participants who have limited experience/success with large veneer cases.


You Will Learn:

  • Aesthetic Photography: Review the necessary photographs for a complete aesthetic exam
  • Smile Design: The art and science of re-envisioning, reinventing and re-creating smiles from the ordinary to the extraordinary will be reviewed
  • Preparation Design: Veneer preparation schemes for different types of cases will be reviewed
  • Laboratory Communication: The necessary photos, diagnostic models, stick bite, face bow and porcelain material selection will be evaluated
  • Temporary Fabrication: Temporaries should serve as a preview of the final results, so that aesthetics, occlusion and patient feedback can be evaluated prior to cementation
  • Cementation of Veneers: The final placement of veneer is a technique sensitive procedure. The protocol for adhesion, cementation and clean-up will be reviewed


Hands-on Workshop Will Include:

Photo analysis, preparations, temporary fabrication and veneer cementation.



Participants need to bring a crown/veneer prep bur kit from any manufacturer. All other supplies and materials will be provided by the Dugoni School of Dentistry.
