|Dr. Hornbrook will discuss various options for your patients relating to aesthetic, metal-free dentistry. Applications including smile design, posterior restorations, fixed bridges, and full mouth rehabilitation will be discussed. Furhter discussion will include updates of dental adhesion, ideal cementations of the new materials, using the new resin cements, and addressing the role function plays in our decidion making. For the past decade, the searchfor invisible, beautiful dentistry has been the goal of both clinicians and manufacturers.
Along with the public's quest for dental aesthetics and a youthful, white smile, as our journey continues, it has also become more difficult as well as confusing. More difficult because our patients are more demanding for perfection and more confusing because of the vast array of new materials and options available to provide this care.
Providing a beautiful aesthetic restoration is the goal, but also these aesthetics must continue functioning long term. It is critical that the dentist be willing to take the steps necessary to truly understand the advantages, disadvantages, indications, and contraindications of these new materials. Without this knowledge, the quality of care delivered will be compromised.
"This truly is the 'PLATINUM AGE' of dentistry and the potential for what we can offer to our patients, both aesthetically and functionally, is more exciting and rewarding than ever." - DSH
