Microvision Aesthetics All About Veneers: Full Course From Smile Design, Lab Communication, Isolation To Bonding. Photo/Video Protocols, DSD Lab Communication, Wax-up Mockups, Smile Prototypes, Guided Preparations and Full Cementation Procedures of Veneers

This course is dedicated to full veneer cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers, including lab communication and work up. We will be working on a REAL PATIENT going through all the stages of Photography, DSD, Digital Scanning, Wax-up, Digital wax up, Resin Model printing, Prepping (on models), Isolation and then bonding (on models and try in on real patient).  It is essentially the only Australian A to Z veneer course of its kind, taught by well-respected internationally renowned Maxim Belograd and Oral Design lab technician Max Zuppardi.

This is a course for anyone wanting to go to the next level with veneer placement and cosmetic dentistry or just brushing up their skills. Don’t miss out this unique course as it may not be repeated in Australia.
