Teeth wear down and VDO is lost, but we can rejuvenate smiles and faces by adding back what's gone. Some jaws never grow into an ideal occlusion, and knowing how to open the bite can be the crucial element to resolving such problems. This course will simplify the steps to incresing VDO, and help you restore cases whether you plan to complete the case in composite or porcelain.


  • A method of opening vertical dimension that is practical and effective
  • Understand how to maximize longevity and conserve tooth structure
  • Step-by-step procedure for building new centric stops to increase VDO with no prep

Central Incisors the Celebrities of the Smile
Time: 1:00pm - 5:00pm

The upper centrals have been called the main actors on the "smile stage". It's not that the supporting 'actors' aren't important, but when the centrals are perfect, the rest of a smile makeover falls in line more easily. Learn what it takes to make these restorations look like they could win an award for their standing role. From contours to proportions, from shade to translucency, learn the critical components of making your composite restorations look great on the red carpet...and everywhere!


  • Avoid the common mistakes that often create a fake look
  • How to quickly use ratios to determine ideal tooth size - even in severely worn cases
  • A simple, quick and practical method for predictable shade matching
