Hot Topics in Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry
2014: The Future of Dentistry

New Course

Course Description

Dr. David Hornbrook clinicalJoin Dr. David Hornbrook as he explores our options for aesthetic, metal-­‐free dentistry for our patients in applications including smile design, posterior restorative, bridge applications, and full mouth rehabilitation. Discussion will include updates of dentinal adhesion, ideal cementation of the new materials using the new resin cements, and addressing the role function plays in our decision making. This truly is the “Platinum Age” of dentistry and the potential for what we can offer to our patients, both aesthetically and functionally, is more exciting and rewarding than ever before.

For the past decade, the search for invisible, beautiful dentistry has been the goal of both the clinician and the manufacturers. Coupled with the public’s quest for ideal aesthetics and a youthful, white smile, as the journey continues, it has also become more difficult. More difficult because our patients are more demanding for perfection today than ever before and more confusing because of the vast array of new materials and options available to provide this care.

The astute clinician, if he or she desires not only to provide beautiful aesthetics, but also for these aesthetics to continue to function long term, must be willing to take the steps necessary to truly understand the advantages, disadvantages, indications, and contraindications of these new materials. Without this knowledge, the quality of care delivered will be compromised.

Course Objectives

Objectives and subjects covered will include:

  • Understanding the advantages of the new ceramics ideal for smile designs
  • The use of lasers to enhance the Aesthetic result
  • Learning how to predictably choose the correct cements for different materials that enhance aesthetics and long term success
  • Understanding how we can truly be metal-­‐free, even with posterior bridges
  • And much, much more…


David Hornbrook is a must see for any dentist in the 21st century. David is one of those rare individuals in dentistry who knows everything about dental materials. Name any adhesive kit any time of the day, and he can talk about it for 10 hours. The quality of my own personal adhesive dentistry doubled after 1 day with David. You have probably seen his name in journals, textbooks, or REALITY, but nothing compares to spending the day with him in a lecture or do what I did and take 2 staff members and $1500 and spend the day with him in his own office. WOW!, what a day! The only thing I don’t like about David is that he has more hair than me.

I want to compliment you on the excellent course on Modern Adhesive Dentistry you presented for Harrison Dental Lab. Your material was well organized and easy to follow, even though you presented many advanced techniques descriptions. You showed some of the most beautiful dentistry I have ever seen. My staff really appreciated how your presentation was geared to the entire office desiring to offer the most conservative, up-­‐to-­‐ date esthetic dentistry for their patients. We were able to return to our office on Monday and immediately incorporate many “pearls” we learned from you. I was really impressed with your ability to create a road map for progressive dental teams for practicing cosmetic dentistry in the 21st century.
