Case Type 5 Tips
Was held May 9th, 2022 at 7:30 pm CT
with Brian P. LeSage, DDS, FAACD

Dr. Brian LeSage, long-standing AACD Accreditation Examiner, recently published a very comprehensive composite artistry article in the AACD Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry. How closely do you see white, pink, and black esthetics when treatment planning composite bonding cases? Attendees learned the subtle nuances that make a good bonding case become a passing Accreditation Case Type 5 (six or more direct resin veneers). Once you see the esthetic issues, can you manipulate composite to emulate mother nature, that rivals porcelain? Clinical tips will be shared to help successfully guide you through what can be considered a challenging case.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn to apply the AACD Accreditation examination criteria in evaluating your pre-op and post-op images to gain success for Accreditation Case Type 5 (six or more direct resin veneers)
  • Observe how a putty matrix and starburst bevel can lead to an undetectable restoration
  • Learn how with a system of layering, finishing, and polishing, you perform seamless restorations
