Contemporary Esthetics Module


Do your patients ask for an “Extreme Esthetic Makeover” of their teeth and a “Hollywood” smile? If so, these online self-study programs are for you. These continuing dental education programs entail the detailed analysis of contemporary tooth esthetics, which is required in cosmetic tooth fabrication for patients. The programs will review the cosmetic anatomical concepts that are needed to be embedded in all restorations. Color matching, enhancing esthetics in direct resin restorations, and identifying esthetic tooth structure nuances that are necessary to create lifelike and expressive cosmetic restorations. Each program will display models of two esthetic patients to demonstrate how properly made cosmetic restorations are constructed. Two clinical cases will be presented to help the participant compare and contrast proper and ultimate esthetic treatment effectiveness.
