About the lecture
This lecture will teach a time-tested process for taking a patient from treatment planning to completion including: treatment sequencing, provisionalization, material selection and laboratory communication.

Students will receive instruction about four treatment options: reshaping, repositioning, restoring and surgical alternatives. Preliminary mouth preparation, such as necessary periodontal procedures and occlusal equilibration, will be covered.

Necessary soft-tissue surgical procedures that provide an ideal gingival backdrop will also be covered. Tooth preparation for crowns and veneers will be presented. Soft-tissue management, in conjunction with final impression-taking techniques, also will be discussed.

Provisional restoration, bite registration techniques, and cementation/adhesive options will be a cornerstone of the presentation.
