TranZitional vs. Traditional: Innovation in Composite Bonding
Presenter: Dr. Corky Willhite

Traditional dentistry is often unaffordable to many patients that need esthetic and functional improvements. Today’s composites are able to successfully restore many of these patients—for lower cost and with less tooth reduction—while still being very profitable for the practice. This course is very different than other resin courses, it’s NOT about layering composite for “ultimate” esthetics, but will cover a new option to help many patients. A predictable technique to achieve improved esthetics will be covered, yet the focus of the course is how to build functional, long-lasting composite restorations—even for non-compliant patients.
