Anterior Composite Artistry: Seminar & Workshop

Anterior Composite Artistry

Friday-Saturday, November 16-17, 2018

Direct composite can be a conservative, durable, and beautiful anterior material. Over two days, focus on developing your artistic skills in anterior composites, while ensuring you make the best materials choices for long-term patient outcomes. Working shoulder to shoulder with our world-class instructor and a handful of fellow participants, you will discuss a variety of the materials and techniques available today. Leave our program prepared to take composites to the next level, where every patient who leaves your office will rave about their extraordinary esthetic results.  

During this quick-moving, two-day event, you will compare total-etch to self-etch techniques and discuss the risks and benefits of each. Working alongside our instructor, Dr. Lee Ann Brady, you will gain hands-on experience with the concept of layering for ultimate beauty and color control. Throughout the seminar and workshop, you will work through state-of-the-industry techniques for simplifying direct composite veneers and Class IV restorations.
