CE 1: Esthetic Interdisciplinary Treatment: An Effective Approach to Address Complex Short-Face Adult Cases James Cheng-Yi Lin, DDS; Ching-Ling Chang, DDS, MS; Stacy Chen, DDS; and Eric Jein-Wein Liou, DDS, MS
This first CE article showcases E-IDT as an alternative to cosmetic surgery in the treatment of a patient with a short, square face. As shown in a case report, this approach takes into account facial proportions and may involve a combination of orthodontics, implant treatment, periodontics, and prosthodontic correction. It can be especially appropriate when overall beauty is a patient priority. Credits: 2 Self-Study CEU Cost: $0 Provider: AEGIS Publications, LLC
CE 2: Establishing a Classification System and Criteria for Veneer Preparations Brian LeSage, DDS
This second CE article involves a proposed classification system and criteria for veneer preparations. Although the concept of “no-prep” or minimal-preparation veneers is not new, the author notes that lack of classifications can lead to miscommunication within the dental profession. He proposes a system that divides preparation and veneering into reduction, volume of enamel remaining, and percentage of dentin exposed.
