Abstract : 

In todays dental world, thinking outside the box is recommended to find simple, practical, and conservative solutions to many dental situations for our patients. Patients sitting in our dental chairs have different expectations and goals. all related to their psychological, financial, and time limitations. We as dentists were trained to achieve treatment results for our patients focusing on preparing teeth, sometimes in a conservative style, but many times with aggressively cutting teeth …
For laminate veneers, the question comes up…should we prepare teeth or not. The no prep philosophy includes full veneers with or without preparation, but is this always the scenario?
Partial or Additive veneers could be an option.
Learning objectives : 

  • How to maintain the health of your patient’s veneers and the surrounding soft tissue using the Guided Biofilm Therapy ( GBT ) concept and philosophy.
  • Teamwork is the key for ultimate conservative and predictable results.
  • Making preparation decision with TRUE SMILE DESIGN concept.
