Advanced Posterior Aesthetics
3 Days Immersion Program
Friday-Sunday, June 24-26, 2016
Next course dates to be announced soon.
This 3 days live patient training course aims to equip the practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to practise mercury-free dentistry and perform predictable and aesthetic posterior restorations. It not only covers lectures on posterior restorations but the hands on will equip you with the skills of performing the procedures in a real clinical setting.
Drs Jerry Lim and Ronnie Yap will outline the need for proper understanding of bonding and excellent techniques in the restoration of posterior teeth. They will cover the material selection, indications for direct versus indirect as well as resins vs porcelain including a heavy emphasis on CAD CAM technology to allow the practitioner to perform same day crown or restorations.
