The main goal of this course is to provide indications and protocols to diagnose and treat severe worn dentition through a new no prep approach increasing the VDO: “The Index Technique.” The course will also focus on when and how to bond on worn dentition, additive partial indirect restorations (onlays/overlays) in composite and/or ceramic, depending on the indication.
All the step-by-step protocols will be addressed through step-by-step images and videos on patients, in order to have a clear overview of this hybrid (direct-indirect) technique through an analog and digital workflow.

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

  • How to diagnose worn dentition (corrosion; attrition; abrasion; abfraction)

  • Opening the VDO and planning the treatment sequence

  • The indications and protocols for a no prep direct adhesive approach: “The Index Technique”

  • The indications and protocols for a minimal invasive indirect adhesive approach through composite and/or ceramic onlays/overlays
