Smileline Esthetics with Crowns & Veneers

Many patients visit our practices solely for esthetic enhancements. Cosmetic dentistry has evolved into an integral element of contemporary dental practice. We must develop the ability to evaluate existing cosmetic deficiencies and recognize patient expectations to design proper procedure for smile improvement. Dr. Smith will discuss the factors that make up smile design and decision-making for the best treatment options for the patient. Current preparation techniques for crowns and veneers will be presented as well as material options with regard to esthetics and function. This presentation will outline restorative techniques from diagnosis to completion. Provisional techniques, longevity, and cementation recommendations for various materials will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate patient’s desires with regard to smile enhancement
  • Deciding between a crown or a veneer
  • Preparation techniques
  • Deciding which material is best for each patient
  • Cementation protocols
  • Maintaining the restorations
