The second course, Clinical Adhesive Techniques, Less Tooth Destruction, takes place at the University on 29 May.

There are many compelling clinical benefits for usingadhesion rather than mechanical retention with its inherent tooth destruction. Avoiding crowns increases the chance of avoiding endodontics.

The ideal onlay prep is flat; mechanical retention leads to weaker restorations and post-op sensitivity. The ideal veneer prep is facial–incisal, avoiding envelope of motion alteration. Data confirms that veneers are often stronger than crowns. After a presentation of current adhesive technology, clinical protocols for utilization of adhesion are presented.
Course content
This session will cover:
•  Clinical Benefits for utilising adhesion: avoiding crowns and avoiding endodontics
•  Fractured anterior teeth and posterior composite techniques
•  Bonding and white spot removal
•  Porcelain veneers after 28 years
