recorded webinar


Replacing missing teeth within the esthetic zone in an esthetically satisfactory fashion has been and still is a major challenge in dentistry.


Prior to this course, participants must possess the basic skill, knowledge, and understanding of ceramic restoration in esthetic restorative and implant dentistry.

High esthetic expectations and the addition of implant therapy have only increased the challenge. It is, therefore, necessary for clinicians and technicians to fully understand all the available options and limitations as well as where, when and how to best utilize them.

The goal is to design a smile that fits the patient’s functional, biological and emotional needs. Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome does not live up to the patient esthetic expectations.

The protocol that is presented will improve the esthetic diagnosis, the communication and the predictability of anterior ceramic restorations.


  • Digital smile design
  • Interdisciplinary and patient communication
  • Diagnostic wax-up guided treatment
  • Types of mock-up: when and how to utilize them
  • Esthetics on implants: abutment design and material selection
  • Combining restorative modalities: implants, crowns, veneers and partial veneers
  • Integrating pink and white esthetics

Participants will learn the following:

  • Evaluate esthetic issues, integrating face and lips.
  • Integrate the diagnostic wax-up and mock-up to the digital treatment plan.
  • Understand the morphological relation between the white and pink esthetics.

The speaker will answer your questions
