Smile Reconstruction Using Porcelain Veneers

Sunday, January 26 at 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry
155 Fifth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

This course is full to capacity but we are accepting waitlist registrations online.

The aesthetic standards for veneers have been raised. Restoring anterior teeth without advanced techniques is no longer acceptable. However, dentists are challenged to stay current with a multitude of improved procedures and materials. In this two-day, hands-on course, you will learn how to show your patients exactly what their new smile will look like through advanced case presentation techniques, and to deliver beautiful restorations. These skills will give you an increased feeling of confidence and pride with your veneer cases.


Aesthetic Photography: Review the necessary photographs for a complete aesthetic exam

Smile Design: The art and science of re-envisioning, reinventing and re-creating smiles from the ordinary to the extraordinary will be reviewed

Preparation Design: Veneer preparation schemes for different types of cases will be reviewed

Laboratory Communication: The necessary photos, diagnostic models, stick bite, face bow and porcelain material selection will be evaluated

Temporary Fabrication: Temporaries should serve as a preview of the final results, so that aesthetics, occlusion and patient feedback can be evaluated prior to cementation

Cementation of Veneers: The final placement of veneer is a technique sensitive procedure. The protocol for adhesion, cementation and clean-up will be reviewed 

Hands-on Workshop Will Include:
Photo analysis, preparations, temporary fabrication and veneer cementation.
