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.

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.

  • Learn how to mix cement shades to neutralize grey shaded and tetracycline-stained teeth
  • Understand the advantages of the different adhesive bonding systems
  • Predictably place multiple veneers at one time with very easy clean-up and finishing

DR Hornbrook goes into the slightest detail about what to do with the anterior restorations from the moment you get them from the lab, inspection, try-in, clean, surface treatment, cementation and finishing. He is an amazing mentor that mixes evidence-based practices together with lots of passion and enthusiasm into his presentation. LOved it!! I am comfortable to cement my second anterior case tomorrow morning!!
Hornbrook saves you time and stress
