Every dental practice has a large segment of patients with healthy but cosmetically "neglected" smiles. Many of those patients do not want to improve their smile because they believe it will require injections, post-operative pain, or destruction of sensitive tooth structure and that discourages patients from accepting treatment. However, with noninvasive veneer solutions, more patients would be willing to proceed with treatment - even patients you did not believe would want it.
Dr. Robert Ibsen demonstrates proven additive, adhesive, shoulder-free veneer techniques you can begin using immediately to best service those patient and increase patient acceptance. He also discusses in this course the importance of case selection, case presentation, and creating awareness in your practice.
This CE Course was recorded a few months before Dr. Ibsen's untimely passing. There will be no fee to view this course.
