Synopsis:
Being a pioneer in live-patient treatment courses, Dr. Hornbrook has mentored thousands of dentists chairside as they have prepared and placed porcelain veneers on their patients. The fundamentals of correct veneer preparation is something that is rarely addressed in dental school and even often skipped over in many of the cosmetic courses on smile designs and full mouth rehabilitations. A thorough understanding of how to correctly prepare the teeth for veneers is as equally as important as understanding ceramic materials and correct adhesive principles and improper preparation can certainly compromise the aesthetics and functional final results. Dr. Hornbrook has often stated in lectures that too many dentists “Prep and Pray” for a predictable result and do not take the time to design the smile and utilize this design to prepare teeth correctly. In this presentation, he discusses the use of a wax-up done by the laboratory and the use of preparation matrices to ensure predictable and repeatable results. He also discusses detailed preparation designs including correct margin placement, how to alter preparation with diastemas, and how to address existing Class III composites and interproximal caries. A special section discusses preparation design for premolars with existing restorations and the use of ¾ reverse crowns to provide conservative, long lasting restorations for our patients.

Description of Speaker:
Dr. David Hornbrook graduated from UCLA School of Dentistry and has an active restorative practice in San Diego, California. He is a pioneer in developing live-patient treatment courses for dentists as one of the original founders of LVI, the founder and director of PAC~live, and the director of the HornbrookGroup. He has been instrumental in product and technique development and was the first to describe the Stick bite, the “Tack & Wave” Veneer Cementation, and the “Shrink to Fit” veneer provisionalization technique. He has lectured internationally on all facets of aesthetic, restorative, and full mouth rehabilitation dentistry and has authored more than a 100 articles published in most of the leading dental journals

Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to achieve the following:
  • Understand the importance of lab communication in designing a wax-up
  • Utilize the wax-up and preparation matrices to yield predictable veneer preparations
  • Understand the importance of depth cuts and when to use different size depth cutting burs
  • Efficiently place veneer margins that will hide underlying tooth structure and close gingival embrasure, even with diastemas
  • Predictably address class III restorations and decay and how to alter preparations in their presence
  • Feel confident in addressing existing restorations in premolars to provide conservative and long lasting restorations
  • Design incisal edge and lingual margins for strength, function, and aesthetics
  • Feel confident that they can provide preparations that will yield predictable aesthetic results based on their smile design

Disclosure:
Dr. Hornbrook declares that neither he nor any member of his family have a financial arrangement or affiliation with any corporate organization offering financial support or grant monies for this continuing dental education program. He does declare that he does have a financial interest in educating dentists.

I really don't have the patience to watch videos/ courses that waste my valuable time. This is clear, concise but covers a lot of details regarding the veneer preps. Every sentence contains valuable information. I am working on one of my first veneer cases and I found it very useful!! Loved it!
