Description

Being a pioneer in live-patient treatment courses, Dr. Hornbrook has mentored thousands of dentists chairside as they have prepared and placed porcelain veneers on their patients. The fundamentals of correct veneer preparation is something that is rarely addressed in dental school and even often skipped over in many of the cosmetic courses on smile designs and full mouth rehabilitations. A thorough understanding of how to correctly prepare the teeth for veneers is as equally as important as understanding ceramic materials and correct adhesive principles and improper preparation can certainly compromise the aesthetics and functional final results. Dr. Hornbrook has often stated in lectures that too many dentists “Prep and Pray” for a predictable result and do not take the time to design the smile and utilize this design to prepare teeth correctly. In this presentation, he discusses the use of a wax-up done by the laboratory and the use of preparation matrices to ensure predictable and repeatable results. He also discusses detailed preparation designs including correct margin placement, how to alter preparation with diastemas, and how to address existing Class III composites and interproximal caries. A special section discusses preparation design for premolars with existing restorations and the use of ¾ reverse crowns to provide conservative, long lasting restorations for our patients.
