Predictably prepping a veneer is easier than you might think! In this DentistryIQ Clinical Video, Chief Editor Dr. Rice shares his simple tips and product recommendations.

  1. Plan: Process is everything: case selection, scan + digital work up, and proper matrices
  2. Practice: I’ve got 29 years of experience, so don’t sweat you needing more reps. Get the right CE. Grab your typodont and prep.
  3. Proper gear: Single use burs! Dull burs slow you down and generate heat.

Personally, I’m a Microcopy guy. I have been all 29 years in practice.
