Course Objectives

Tooth preparation is the foundation of what we do as restorative dentists. Crowns, minimal reduction veneers, conventional reduction veneers, extensive reduction veneers, veneerlays, onlays, inlays – the design is dictated by the requirements of the material selected and the outcome desired. This workshop provides opportunity to explore, understand, and practice delivering on both of those requirements.

Material requirements provide the guide for creating space, and will be discussed in detail. A step-by-step system of tooth reduction using specially designed diamonds will increase your competence, your confidence, and your efficiency for all of the materials you choose to work with. This is a very “hands-on” workshop in which we discuss the concepts AND do the preps. Bring your magnification and take advantage of seeing more with higher power surgical loupes available for you to try in the exercises. With 28 teeth to practice on, you will return home ready to immediately implement the skills you gained.
