One of the most stressful things we do in dentistry in the try-in and cementation of multiple veneers. There are huge expectations for ourselves and from our patients, including whether all the restorations will seat correctly, will they all match, or will there be any contamination or bleeding and this all adds to the stress. The last thing we need is for the actual cementation process, try-in and veneer and tooth preparation protocol to add to this stress. Dr. David Hornbrook has mentored thousands of clinicians throughout the world on correct utilization of veneer adhesive systems and has created an efficient and predictable technique for bonding in anterior restorations entitled the “Tack & Wave” technique. This protocol is currently being taught at most of the major teaching centers and most post-graduate university programs. Join Dr. Hornbrook as he discusses Veneer try-in and selection of cements, adjustment of the ceramic during try-in, state-of-the-art adhesive systems, selection of cements, and proper finishing and polishing techniques. Also discussed and shown is the use of the AMSA injection for obtaining anesthesia for maxillary anterior teeth without lip anesthesia for predictable evaluation of the new smile by the patient before cementation.
