A Guide to Treating Anterior Discolorations

On-demand CE lecture with a future scheduled live Q&A and Case Discussion.
The registration period has closed for this event.


Once you start looking for it, you would be surprised how many patients have surface and sub-surface enamel discolorations. If you can offer treatment options for these patients that are more conservative than veneers or composite bonding, there are many patients who would love to have these discolorations treated. There are two conservative options for treating these discolorations: microabrasion and resin infiltration. Microabrasion is a technique that removes up to 100 microns of the outer layer of enamel. Resin infiltration is a new technique that removes some of the outer layer of enamel and then infiltrates an unfilled resin into the space. Although these techniques are pretty easy to perform, there are some tips and tricks for successfully diagnosing lesions and treating them optimally.

This course will focus on resin infiltration. The pre-recorded 3-hour lecture will explain how to diagnose and treat these lesions. A link to the lecture content will be provided after registration and payment. Our goal is to have you ready to treat your first case as soon as you finish the course.

Drs. Lawson and Robles will also schedule a Zoom lecture in the spring for Q&A and case discussion
. If you have a case you would like to discuss with them, please have pictures available.

Course Objectives:

1. Learn how to diagnose which enamel discolorations can be treated with these microinvasive treatments


2. Become comfortable in isolating the teeth prior to resin infiltration


3. Learn the steps for performing resin infiltration
