From Prep to Finish: Anterior Composite Restorations Short course

Sorry, this course has closed to new applicants. We're not updating the course information on this page – it's for reference only.


Anterior composite restorations – particularly of the single central incisor – are among the hardest aesthetic procedures for a dental clinician.
