1. INFILTRATION AND ENAMEL DEFECTS UNRAVELLED

Most of us will probably encounter enamel defects on anterior teeth daily, mainly in adolescents. These enamel abnormalities and discolorations can be very esthetically compromising, but treatment seemed to be rather invasive with composite or porcelain veneers. Nowadays we can use resin infiltration as a minimal invasive treatment to improve the esthetics of these defects. The Infiltration Concept (ICON) was originally designed to treat early primary caries lesions, but became popular for the treatment of esthetically unpleasing enamel defects. Due to the fact that the protocol was not designed for these kind of treatments, results turned out to be unpredictable sometimes. During a 10 year quest looking for the perfect protocol experiencing a lot of failures and successes, it seemed to be of major importance to correctly diagnose the defects before any treatment. Every defect has his own characteristics which eventually may guide a customized treatment protocol. The biggest secret of success lies within meticulous analysis of the location of the porosityenting sealing prior to root canal (re)treatment, a concept known as Immediate Pre-endo Dentin Sealing (IPDS).​​

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe enamel abnormalities and discolorations

  • Understand the The Infiltration Concept (ICON)

  • Understand characteristics of every defectm which eventually may guide a customized treatment protocol

2. THE FANTASTIC 4: CREATING PREDICTABLE RESULTS WITH THE INFILTRATION CONCEPT

In esthetic cases the Infiltration Concept (ICON) alone will fall short; dark discolorations may still be left in place, the defect is not completely infiltrated or the surface turns out to be concave. After predictically treating over 500 front teeth it is suggested to combine 4 fantastic complementary treatments together; (1) micro-abrasion, (2) bleaching/tooth whitening, (3) infiltration and (4) composite bonding. Having these Fantastic 4 in your toolbox will make treatment of every defect as predictable as possible. Become familiar with the full treatment protocol and be able to create beautiful smiles and help your patients to get rid of yellow or white enamel discolorations. Brace yourself for the finest of minimal invasive dentistry!

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the 4 fantastic complementary treatmentss to ICON: (1) micro-abrasion, (2) bleaching/tooth whitening, (3) infiltration and (4) composite bonding.

  • Become familiar with the full treatment protocol and be able to create beautiful smiles and help your patients to get rid of yellow or white enamel discolorations
