LIVE VIRTUAL HANDS-ON COURSE:
Injection Molding and The Bioclear Technique for Composites
Get started with Bioclear and the Bioclear Method—a live, hands-on beginner course. Materials included.
Learn the basics of Bioclear and heated injection molding in a small, interactive online class.
In today’s world of implants and computer assisted ceramics, direct composites can offer a compelling minimally invasive alternative that will meet patients needs and exceed their expectations. The Bioclear Method allows you to create predictable repeatable outcomes that look natural when using composite. Esthetic treatments including diastema closure, black triangle closure, Class II, III and IV composite restorations are just the start of what can be done with the increasingly popular Bioclear Method.
In this live—and lively—7-hour session, you will be introduced to the benefits of Bioclear, practice techniques on soft-tissue dentiforms, and come away with the basic skills and understanding needed as a precursor to performing the Bioclear Method for patients. Course materials are included in the price and will be mailed to you upon registration.
