“The Five P’s of Porcelain Veneers – A Unique Lecture Experience”

A logical and systematic approach is one of the keys to success with porcelain veneers. Specific planning, preparation, provisionalization, and placement guidelines will be discussed along with the latest materials, ceramics, and adhesive systems. A number of clinical cases will be shown. This no fluff presentation provides useful and practical information for the clinician desiring to take their practice to new levels of care and service.

  1. Planning – The comprehensive exam… the place to start (learn to see the BIG picture and not just the    front teeth…planning is the key to success with veneers).
  2. Periodontal – Gingival health, levels and contours (Make sure the frame is right before you paint the    picture).
  3. Preparation – How and why (definitive preparations for optimal fit and esthetics – What about “no-prep” veneers?
  4. Provisionalization – Methodology and tips (how to minimize problems and fabricate provisionals that    really look good).
  5. Placement – Adhesive systems, veneer resin cements, optimizing silane performance, practical tips, and more (How to predicitably place them).
