Course Description
This Lecture and demo course will teach participants the laboratory and clinical steps for implementing BFEP’s (bonded functional esthetic prototypes) using a special light cured structural flowable (that can actually be used for semi-permanent restorations) prior to ECR (veneer) preparation to “trial” the smile for increased predictability of case acceptance. The step-by-step process of 2 different types of ECR preparations based on the esthetically driven desired outcome will be demonstrated and completed by the participants.


Objectives
Participants will learn and complete procedures such as:
  • Special clear tray techniques and developing clear matrix’s for the BFEP technique
  • Bonded diagnostic Functional Esthetic Prototypes using a special high physical property flowable composite
  •  Minimalistic to no-prep situations
  • Preparations for bonded porcelain with a specific emphasis on how to control tooth reduction
  • Preparations to close Diasthema’s on one central incisor and peg lateral
  • Sealing Dentin using Universal,
  • Defect Driven posterior Onlay
  • Posterior Block-out using structural flowable. Some call this technique “resin coating”
  • Adhesive update and Cementation  demo
  • “4th Generation 2.0
