Full Day

Esthetic dentistry – from diagnosis to final natural result

Dr. Francesco Mintrone

A  systematic approach to esthetic and functional data collection enables the clinician to formulate a correct diagnosis of the patient’s concerns and to establish the most appropriate treatment plan for an ideal esthetic and functional integration of the prosthetic restoration,  from simple to complex cases. In the first day of this Esthetic Week we will analyze in detail all the most important steps in Esthetic Dentistry that enable a clinician to obtain a predictable Esthetic result using the most appropriate materials and techniques presently on the market.

In addition, we will compare the traditional prosthetic path with the most advanced digital approach in a way to fully understand the new trend in Esthetic Dentistry.
