The direct and indirect adhesive restorations are excellent solutions to recovery the compromised teeth and, at the same time, they allow an aesthetic upgrade with an extremely conservative approach. In the lecture will be shown microscopy video to follow step by step the clinical procedures that lead to the aesthetic-functional goal and that allow you […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Luca Tacchini
Despite remarkable achievements in computer science and more recently significant advances in artificial intelligence, digital dentistry is still mainly a user-dependent endeavour. That said, the principles and knowledge-based approach in esthetic rehabilitation remain the same. Nevertheless, digital workflows apply powerful tools that used with wisdom have potencial to render much of the manual labor from planning to fabrication of dental prosthesis caput.

In spite of the many philosophies of work related to Ceramic Veneers, our team developed with a clinical experience of over more than 10,000 veneers made a protocol of cementation based on solid scientific concepts and understanding of the best and most practical clinical solutions available . Thus, the objective of the course is to […]Click for more information on 'Prof. Dr. Rafael Decurcio – Cementation of Ceramic Veneers – The Science as the basis of Clinical Decisions'
The time when different specialists of our profession were working alone is definitely over. Interdisciplinary interaction became the gold standard in Dentistry. Nowadays, the available technology permits better communication between all team members, resulting in less mistakes during the work execution. These tools, together with the respect for biological principles, makes the decision of the treatment plan option […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Eric Van Dooren & Dr. Nuno Sousa Dias
Restoration of large defects in the posterior region with a direct composite restoration is possible, although this is not an easy task for the dentist. The most durable, minimal invasive restoration of posterior teeth with large defects is the indirect bonded partial lithium disilicate glass ceramic restoration (onlay, partial crown). During this lecture, the new […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Gianfranco Politano & Dr. Marleen Peumans
Pink esthetics is essential in implant treatment. Both surgical and prosthodontic procedures in implant therapy contribute to the success in pink esthetics greatly. A proper treatment strategy before the operation is an element of great importance for the final success in pink esthetics. During the surgical procedure of a standard implant placement, we need to […]Click for more information on 'Prof. Dr. Feng Liu
Photography is powerful in dentistry, its numerous applications such as diagnosis and treatment planning, legal documentation, publishing and lecturing has made digital photography a standard of care in modern dental practices. Till last year the DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras were the only way in dentistry to take high quality macro images. Recently, smartphones […]Click for more information on 'Prof. Dr. Louis Hardan
Abstract : The request for esthetic is increasing daily in the dental office. Patients showing the so called gummy smile are patient suffering of a condition called altered passive eruption. These patients show usually short teeth and a visible unbalance between the pink and white esthetic. The presentation will help to learn how to diagnose, […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Roberto Rossi
2D and 3D smile design for implant planning and manufacturing of pre-surgical provisional restorations. Participants will use 3D intraoral scanning to virtually plan an implant in the esthetic zone. They will then use this plan for designing of a 3D printed surgical guide. Also the design of a pre-surgical provisional will be demonstrated.Click for more information on 'Hands-on
The Bio-Emulation approach as written in structural analysis and visual synthesis defined the new bases to consider for replication of natural tooth structures with composite resin. The penta_laminar concept represents the ultimate implementation of this philosophy: analysing different ageing stages to build a dynamic shade concept that adapts to nature. However, feasibility of application of this concept […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Javier Tapia
Implantology, is one of the most demanded treatments in our dental offices, it is no longer enough to have function, but there is also a great demand for esthetics. The cases in wich esthetics is the most important part of the treatment, are the real challenge for the clinican. When an implant is placed in the aesthetic […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Juan Arias
We have heard many times that highly aesthetic restorations need sophisticated and complex approaches, only reachable to the “gifted ones”. What if I tell you that this is possible to teach and repeat a feasible method that allows you to achieve perfect restorations with a high rate of success. This approach consents you to do […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Jordi Manauta Styleitaliano – Tips and tricks.'
Published in 2010, a study conducted between MIT and Union College demonstarted that collective intelligence exceeds cognitive abilities of individual group members. The principle also applies to medicine. The process of decision making is nowadays influenced by the continous flux of information, the evolution of the technology, and the development of new protocols and evidence-based […]Click for more information on 'Dr. Diana Boangar – Ortho-prosthetics interdisciplinarity; from planning to execution'
Implant dentistry has developed over the last years as a result of the patients’ requirement for aesthetics and function. More and more surgical techniques for predictable implant placement and augmentation of hard and soft tissues became available to achieve such an aesthetic result and to be able to follow a precise “backward treatment plan”.

The recreation of the anatomical tooth form together with its optical features has been considered an arduous, challenging and elusive task. With the constant evolution of clinical and laboratorial software and hardware, the digital workflow took control of a series of tasks and procedures that were once artistically handmade by highly skilled artisans.
