July 30, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Edwin A. McDonald, D.D.S., FAGD, FICD

When teeth are missing, damaged, and in the wrong place; when the patient’s occlusion has deteriorated; when a smile has lost it’s beauty – where do you start and how do you finish? In other words, what do you do when all of your normal reference points are missing? How do you restore your patient to a result that is beautiful, stable, and healthy? The answers to those questions are what you will take away from this lecture. The fundamentals of esthetics and function and their relationship to one another will guide our detailed look at treatment planning and decision making in both the complex and simple cases that come your way.

Part One Learning Objectives:
1) Fundamental concepts of facial and dental esthetics.
2) Esthetic reference points of teeth and gingiva.
3) Digital smile design.
4) Understanding the esthetic risk of the patient.
