The course will constitute an amalgam between evidence and based lecturing and hands-on training.

In the lectures will be an in-depth over view of the steps in chronological order starting from planning all the way to delivery and post-op.This course is specially designed to highlight the laboratory steps that are often overlooked be the dental education. The lab fabrication will be explained and demonstrated. This knowledge helps clinicians better communicate wit the lab technicians and ensure greater mechanical and esthetic success.

In the hands-on, the participants will experience how to design different tooth preparations and provisionalization. In addition a comprehensive photography techniques will be demonstrated followed by the participants taking their own photos and improving their skills.


Ceramic veneer treatments start with careful planning (case selection, examination, wax-up) followed by multiple clinical and laboratory steps. Many of these steps are technique sensitive, interdependent, and case specific.

Techniques sensitivity refers to some of the delicate processes such as bonding and adjustments of the very thin fragile veneers. With accurate bonding protocols, veneers can stay in place for a long time. However, the slightest contamination at bonding or misplacement of the veneer can result in early failure and de-bonding.

The steps of veneer treatments are, just as in most Prosthodontic treatments, are highly interdependent. A mistake in preparation design can manifest later as a failure in esthetic or mechanical failure. For example, if the tooth is very discolored and the preparation is very minimal then the resulting esthetics will be compromised.

Lastly, these treatments are case specific. The process of planning and executing veneers has to be case-by-case customized. For example mechanically speaking, a 30 year old heavily built bruxer will require a different preparation design than the 50 year old non bruxer.

Learning Objectives

  1. Plan veneer treatment cases.
  2. Execute precise preparation and impression and provisionalization techniques.
  3. Execute proper bonding.
  4. Take pre and post intra and extra oral photos.
  5. Design proper occlusion.
