The focus of this hands-on program is to provide the general practitioner with key insights in achieving predictable, esthetic outcomes with porcelain veneers. In the first part of the session, we will review prosthodontic treatment planning as well as indications and contraindications for porcelain veneers. A step-by-step approach to tooth preparation, impression, temporization and cementation will follow. Clinical examples of porcelain veneers will be presented. The hands-on component will recap the didactic session, giving course participants the opportunity to prepare, impress and temporize the maxillary anteriors on a typodont.
