Treating a single central is one of the most difficult procedures that a dentist has to do. Even more difficult is the discolored central due to endodontics, trauma, or tetracycline staining. This hands-on course will teach you how to use opaquers to raise the value of the tooth, without creating too bright of a tooth. You will also learn the use of tints to create incisal translucency. These techniques can be incorporated immediately into your practice for profitability.
