Anterior All-Ceramic Restorations: Considerations of Veneers Before Crowns 

Minimally invasive dentistry and doing no harm, yet meeting the patients’ expectations, are the challenges one faces in a cosmetic dental practice today. Ideally, no-prep veneers is the objective, but is this attainable? Dr. LeSage will share his 35 years of experience of adhesive dentistry and his journey in veneer preparations including his Veneer Classification System most recently updated in the book Esthetic Oral Rehabilitation with Veneers. Simple, predictable techniques from prototype fabrication and try-in one (TIO) veneer will be discussed. Learn systems to treat Hollywood’s elite and attain clinically acceptable outcomes for all your patients!

Learning Objectives:

  • Review biomimetic principles in anterior all-ceramic restorations  
  • Understand preparation design from no-prep to conventional
  • Learn prototype fabrication and the TIO technique as a guide to patient satisfaction.
