A-Z of Restorative Dentistry (Module 2)

30th - 1st November 2020

Course summary

The Direct Restoration of Anterior Teeth with Composite Resin.

Conventionally, discoloured teeth, diastemas, peg laterals and advanced wear cases are treated
with indirect restorations: crowns and veneers.

This approach is well based in the literature and over time, has proven highly successful. However, in some cases it may prove expensive in terms of overall cost, treatment times and most critically loss of tooth structure.

This module is designed to revise core knowledge of colour, layering and polishing and to build on this to allow the delegate to confidently approach more challenging anterior cases with direct resin in combination with simple occlusal rehabilitation and bleaching where indicated.

A great lesson on recreating anatomy. Ideal for young dentists and experienced clinicians alike.

Nik Sethi BDS

After our first hands-on exercise, the work I was able to do was better than any I8 have ever done before. On Monday when I got into the office, all that I had learned translated immediately. I was able to bring this new skill to my patients that day. Typically I do not see such an immediate impact on my practice, but this course was different. Thank you for making me a better dentist.

Phil Zelmanow

The A-Z of Restorative Dentistry course with Jason Smithson provided a comprehensive update on restorative dentistry with high end outcomes in mind. Jason’s presentations were all evidence based and simultaneously managed to inspire and entertain. The course structure allowed in depth discussion on cases including our own patients. A major element of the course was hands on with clear demonstrations and support throughout.

Eddie Bateman

The Restorative course has helped me in my daily practice, it has a good mix of theory and hands-on skills and has made me feel more confident in tackling cosmetic cases that I may have referred in the past. Jason’s dentistry and breadth of knowledge is inspirational and it was a pleasure to learn from someone who is a master of their craft.
