Cosmetic Dentist: Thinking In Minimums In Order To Achieve Maximum Results – Dr. Dennis Wells


Since the invention of the porcelain veneer, cases have been done with little or no preparation of the teeth. Though many of these cases miss the mark of current cosmetic standards, there are many obvious advantages to not preparing on the teeth which still hold true today. Many consider prepless dentistry to be inherently bulky and detectable, but this lecture will show that is simply not the case. Important considerations will be explored for case selection and exact techniques will be discussed that have proven effective in achieving predictable success with absolutely no preparation on the teeth.
We will also demonstrate the advantages of using custom composite prototypes as a blueprint for smile design and show how post-cementation polishing can aid in creating undetectable results. READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE

A dental CE cruise, sponsored by the TN ACD departing San Juan Dec 31, 2016 and returning Jan 7, 2017. Our concept is to have attendees share in short presentations, but that is not required. This will keep costs down and allow for maximum learning from each other. Celebrity is an upscale line with smaller ships. The Celebrity Summit will be newly renovated prior to sailing. Anyone is welcome – dentists, spouses, children, parents, friends. Our expectation is 40 – 100 people. READ MORE ABOUT THE NEW YEARS CRUISE….
