On-Demand – Aesthetic and Functional Bonding: A Sequential Process to Successful Bonding Procedures and Techniques

Speaker: Dimple Desai, DDS

Title: Aesthetic and Functional Bonding: A Sequential Process to Successful Bonding Procedures and Techniques

Date & Time: On-Demand

CEU Credits: 1 CEU (general credit)

Description: Patients enter the dental office with misaligned, chipped or discolored bonded restorations. However, social media makes patients more fearful of "drilling" on their teeth. Therefore, they become very apprehensive about treatment. It is crucial to educate and communicate with patients and use a more conservative approach to enhancing their smiles. Step one for success is to correctly align the teeth in order to have long-term results with composite bonding. Step two is assessing where and how much is needed to enhance the newly positioned teeth to create a more aesthetic result. Composite bonding can yield immediate results and gratifications.

Participants will be able to:

  • discuss how the alignment and occlusion affect final aesthetic outcomes and longevity of the restoration.
  • learn how to match composite shades to the existing teeth.
  • learn the indications for bonding.
  • review the preparations for bonding.
  • review post-composite bonding instructions.
