Course Outline

This 2-hour live stream hands-on course will teach you the principals of how to treat a midline diastema without the use of wedges or a matrix system.

This no preparation approach will simplify your life and help you create natural-looking restorations without removing tooth structure. This is truly augmentation versus amputation. Finishing and polishing will be demonstrated and performed by participants to prevent any marginal staining and white lines. This simple technique can add revenue to your practice and provide long-term restorations.

  • How to use the pull-through technique for tight diastema contacts.

Mastering the Class IV Restoration

October 8, 2019 6:30pm-9:00pm

Course Outline

In this 2-hour live stream hands-on course, Dr. Margeas will review a typical Class IV case, then demonstrate each step of this technique allowing ample time for each participant to perform each step, as well as have the ability to ask questions and discuss the procedure in real-time. Matching the colour, opacity, and translucency of adjacent teeth when presented with a Class IV fracture is common and a challenge for most dentists, Every tooth is unique, with varying degrees of characterization in the form of opacity, translucency, incisal edge colour as well as enamel effects such as white spots or craze lines. When composite is the restorative material of choice, most Class IV cases require a layering placement technique. To mimic true enamel properties as well as dentin opacity, each material used must exhibit specific properties and be placed with meticulous care to ensure a natural esthetic result can be achieved. The use of a lingual matrix to replace the lingual shelf followed by precise placement of dentin, incisal and enamel shades can yield consistent and accurate results.

Course Outcomes and Hands-On Learning Objectives

Clinicians will learn:

  • How to create a lingual matrix and use it to replace a Class IV lingual shelf.
  • How and where to place Dentin, Incisal, Enamel and Specialty Enamel Shades.
  • How to create a life-like restoration.
  • How to create enamel texture to mimic real teeth.
  • A polishing technique that is fast and predictable.
