Smile Makeover With Injectable Composite Workshop
Session 1: 11th April 2020 | Session 2: 12th April 2020
Delivering a Smilemakeover Experience with Injectable Composite
A smile makeover is a dental procedure that requires an esthetic eye, an attention to details and good clinical hand skills. This complex treatment involves the utilization of various techniques and materials to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result. Such materials frequently involved porcelain veneers and crowns, as well as dental composite restorative materials.
For the budget conscious, composite veneer treatment has always been a widely accepted and cost-effective option to smile makeover. The injection molding approach has the ability to transfer a pre-designed smile template, using highly flowable composite into the smile arch. In the past, this was limited by the flowable material mechanical strength as well as inadequate polish retention. Hence, it was not regularly used for smile reconstruction. The introduction of a modern injectable high-strength, ultra-fine particle composite, together with the complementary Clear PVS Putty, has given an updated and renewed take on this technique.
In this workshop, Dr Anthony Tay will go through the detailed treatment planning and the step-by-step workflow instructions required to create a designer smile, using Injectable composite. When done well, composite veneers can be a popular and cheaper alternative to the more costly porcelain equivalent, with great satisfactions from the esthetic-conscious patients.
