47th Annual DREA Symposium
DEC 6 - 7, 2019

Functional Aesthetics

Presented by

Dr. David Hornbrook
Diplomate American Board of Aesthetic Dentistry

Course Description


Dentistry is changing faster today than anytime in modern history. The role of the monolithic restorations, Universal Adhesives, and digital, needs to be understood and implemented in every dental practice. As a practicing clinician and as the Director of Education and Technology at Utah Valley Dental Lab, Dr. David Hornbrook has a very unique perspective of these changes in what he has coined “living on both sides of the Bench”. With a practice focused on metal-free, all-ceramic Aesthetic based dentistry, Dr. Hornbrook understands the importance of predictability, ease of use, and long term success when deciding which restorative material and cementation option will provide the best results.

As the Director of Technology at a State-of-the-Art Dental Lab, his day to day interaction with ceramists and other clinicians provides him a thorough understanding of the problems both these groups face and how they are overcoming challenges and benefitting from CAD:CAM, Digital Wax-ups and Design, and high strength, aesthetic ceramic materials.

Join Dr. Hornbrook as he discusses:

  • Esthetic, monolithic ceramics and when to use what.
  • Deciphering the new dentinal adhesive agents and how can we combine ease-of-use with long-term predictability.
  • When to adhesively “bond” and when we can use “Luting” agents and what’s available.
  • PMMA long-term provisionals and how they are used to provisionalize implant sites and help sequence Full Mouth Rehabilitations.
  • Bio-stimulating cements: how and when they can and should be used.
  • Achieving highly Aesthetic anterior Implant results using the “H” Abutment.
  • New changes in implant designs that allow for Screw-Retained Implant crowns where traditional designs made this impossible.
  • The new milling machines for ZrO2, Lithium Disilicate and resins, to yield more accurate and detailed restorations.Use of a computer-assisted-anesthetic delivery device to limit the amount ofanesthesia used and allows for evaluation of Smile Designs with full lip mobility
  • ...and much more!
