Course summary

Introducing a comprehensive approach for the restoration of anterior and posterior teeth with all ceramic veneers, onlays and crowns.

The emphasis will be on adhesive, minimally invasive tooth coloured restorations: from treatment planning, through preparation, impression taking, provisionalisation and final cementation/ finishing.

Cutting edge, evidence based theoretical knowledge will be complemented by a strong hands on component.

  • Ultimate isolation for indirect preparation and cementation.
  • Horizontal vs vertical – which margin, when and why? Vertical Margin Design.
  • Immediate Dentin Sealing and Gingival Margin Elevation for optimal adhesion.
  • The Pillars of Adhesive Preparation Design.
  • The Concept of Ferrule (Vertical and Horizontal.)
  • Biological width and periodontal considerations.
  • Impression Taking (materials, trays and techniques.)
  • Conditioning of Intaglio… not all materials are equal.

  • Molar onlay preparation with margin elevation.
  • Vertical preparation of a central incisor.
  • Veneer preparation of two incisor teeth.

This is a real must-do-course! Well organised and expertly run.

Dr Alan Hirschowitz BDS-Wits

After our first hands-on exercise, the work I was able to do was better than any I8 have ever done before. On Monday when I got into the office, all that I had learned translated immediately. I was able to bring this new skill to my patients that day. Typically I do not see such an immediate impact on my practice, but this course was different. Thank you for making me a better dentist.

Phil Zelmanow

The A-Z of Restorative Dentistry course with Jason Smithson provided a comprehensive update on restorative dentistry with high end outcomes in mind. Jason’s presentations were all evidence based and simultaneously managed to inspire and entertain. The course structure allowed in depth discussion on cases including our own patients. A major element of the course was hands on with clear demonstrations and support throughout.

Eddie Bateman

The Restorative course has helped me in my daily practice, it has a good mix of theory and hands-on skills and has made me feel more confident in tackling cosmetic cases that I may have referred in the past. Jason’s dentistry and breadth of knowledge is inspirational and it was a pleasure to learn from someone who is a master of their craft.

A great lesson on recreating anatomy. Ideal for young dentists and experienced clinicians alike.
