Description

Five New Tools In The Aesthetic Dentistry Toolbox: How, Where and When to Use Them!

Most dental professionals were never taught at dental school any methods for changing tooth shade beyond hydrogen peroxide bleaching. There are now many options in this space, including tooth lightening, nano-hydroxyapatite, colour correction dyes, active stain dispersing agents, and non-peroxide bleaching technologies. Each of these 5 has its own set of features and indications. To be able to give informed advice, it is important to have a working knowledge of these 5 topics, in terms of the fundamental chemistry and physics of what they do and how they do it, and appreciate what the literature shows about where they can be used. This presentation is a bootcamp in the basics of their use. It will provide advice on situations where these are best suited for use, and any special issues in relation to sequencing with other treatments, including with conventional bleaching methods.

Learning Objectives That Will Be Explained In This Program Include:

  • Understand how tooth reflection patterns can be altered using nanomaterials
  • Appreciate differences between hydrogen peroxide, light-based and non-peroxide systems from patient and clinician perspectives
  • Determine where active stain dispersal can be used to greatest benefit
  • Understand how surface dyes can affect the perceived colour of teeth
  • Learn the 5 ways that light can enhance bleaching outcomes
