DentLit Dr. Miguel A Ortiz and Dr. Carlos de Carvalho
Teaching, research and clinical practice are the foundations that support dentistry. It is important to understand that without research and teaching our specialities become a simple pedagogic exercise. We believe that dentistry should be based in scientific evidence. Clinical practice is no longer accepted without it being supported by scientific work that ensures its effectiveness. It is for this reason that old mechanical concepts were surpassed by the “adhesive era”.
The objective of the course is to develop the following abilities in students:
To understand that the use of laminate veneers must be interpreted as a complex oral rehabilitation.
The development of facial analysis, and customization of the ideal smile by using a sequenced scientifically based approach.
To understand the importance of dental photography for the development of a photographic protocol for digital planning in aesthetic dentistry.
The development and understanding of the role of mock-up from the wax up to the mouth, guided by the virtual drawing of smile design.
The learning and reproducibility of the 3 associated clinical protocols for the personalization of a smile when using veneers.
The learning and improvement of the necessary techniques for the implementation of laminate veneers:
Minimally invasive preparation and fitness
Selection of porcelain and laboratory technique of laminate veneers
