Porcelain veneers can be utilized very often to create highly esthetic results. This hands-on workshop aids in the esthetic diagnosis and treatment process. A series of illustrations are used to delineate both macro and micro aspects of smile design. These principles of esthetic diagnosis can be then utilized to formulate a wax-up to demonstrate to the patient the potentials of treatment. A brief discussion of Digital Smile Design (DSD) provides another technique to help formulate treatment. Learn and practice veneer preparation and cementation for both a diastema and conventional preparation.
