The Annual Partnership Seminar between the Snohomish County Dental Society, the University of Washington School of Dentistry, and Seattle-King County Dental Society is back! Join Drs.Greg Gillespie and Kevin Brown at this all-day program at the Lynnwood Events Center. Anterior Aesthetics is an ever-evolving landscape of different ways to approach proper treatment planning and workflow. Digital technology has greatly advanced the options for planning capabilities between patients, doctors, and laboratories. Drs. Brown and Gillespie will highlight how to maximize these digital tools to enhance treatment planning options to make esthetic restorations as minimally invasive as possible, including the incorporation of clear aligner therapy. They will discuss intraoral scanning, digital photography, simulated outcomes, digitally printed models, imaging and software options as well as how to put all these pieces together to make your final outcomes more predictable.  Restorative material selection will be covered including when to choose composite resin, lithium disilicate, zirconia, or feldspathic porcelain in esthetic cases.

The live demonstration portion will allow participants to observe step by step an anterior resin workflow.  A simplified color layering technique will be taught and displayed. Emphasis will be on proper finishing and polishing restorations to make them lifelike and long lasting without margins resurfacing or discoloration over time.  This provides an immediate enhancement to an office digital workflow that will give additional esthetic options for doctors and patients in an easy, cost-effective way.
