Course Description


We have heard many times that highly aesthetic restorations need sophisticated and complex approaches, only reachable with the “gifted ones”. What if I tell you that it is possible to teach and repeat a feasible method that allows you to achieve perfect restorations with a high rate of success. Our approach allows you to do basically three things, rational colour matching, exact reproduction of the selected colour and the ability to distinguish and learn from eventual mistakes. Understanding material selection, layering technique and morphology management is mandatory for mimicking the slightest nuances in patient’s teeth, and this course will help you get out of those clinical difficulties with composite restorations.


The main goal of this course is to teach the practitioner useful techniques that can be applied immediately after the course in their everyday dentistry to boost the quality of their work, especially regarding function and aesthetics.
