Texas Brief AM
The Dynamics of Anterior Teeth: Form, Function, and Esthetics


The clinician is spending more time taking care of anterior teeth. If the dentist is not bleaching them, he or she is covering them with beautiful porcelain. It is time to take a close look at what makes front teeth look beautiful and function correctly. Let's see if form does follow function. In this course, Dr. Shirley will look at the anatomy of anterior teeth, the esthetics of anterior teeth, how to prepare anterior teeth for crowns and veneers, how to temporize anterior veneers and crowns, and how anterior teeth function.

• Review the anatomy of anterior teeth

• Take a close look at what makes front teeth esthetically pleasing
• Preparation of anterior teeth -- crowns and veneers
