This program covers in depth the risk and causative factors for tooth wear and their bio-mechanical implications. A very detailed and comprehensive treatment approach will be presented, taking into account tooth wear extent and individual dental conditions. It actually guides the clinician toward the most appropriate and conservative restorative solution, using either direct and indirect techniques, composite or ceramics. Probably the most complete and evidence-based program of its kind.
