Course Synopsis
Join Dr. Hornbrook as he explores options for aesthetic, metal­‐free dentistry for our patients in applications including smile design, posterior restorative, bridge applications, and full-mouth rehabilitation. Discussion will include updates of dentinal adhesion, ideal cementation of new materials using the new resin cements, and addressing the role function plays in our decision making. This truly is the “Platinum Age” of dentistry and the potential for what we can offer to our patients, both aesthetically and functionally, is more exciting and rewarding than ever before. 

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the advantages of the new ceramics ideal for smile designs.
  • Understanding the use of lasers to enhance the aesthetic result, including “Closed-­Flap” osseous crown lengthening.
  • Deciphering what, when, and how the “prepless” veneer case can be successful.
  • Learning how to predictably choose the correct cements for different materials that enhance aesthetics and long-term success.
  • Understanding how we can truly be metal‐free, even with posterior bridges.
  • Eliminating the need for traditional core build­‐ups in the posterior when using “bonded” ceramics.
