‘‘This 3-day hands-on course focuses on the value of a thorough understanding of anterior direct bonded restorations. You will learn how to artistically sculpt restorations to achieve proper tooth morphology through advanced composite layering techniques that mimic nature. You will gain understanding on how to incorporate a restorative technique that offers a beautiful alternative to ceramic restorations while being conservative, superbly esthetic, and extremely long lasting.’’

Newton Fahl, Jr., DDS, MS


“Of all the courses I have attended around the world, this is one which I would re-attend without any hesitation”

Course content

Two central incisors restored using completely different products and very different layering strategies… yet they look identical afterwards. How is this possible?


There are many, many composite courses available. However many are flawed in that they focus solely on one manufacturer’s products, spend too much time focused only on restoration colour, or both. No one product is “perfect”, nor is colour the only component which makes a restoration into a perfect reproduction of the natural tooth tissue.

This course is unique in that it is truly multi-system, taught by the undisputed master of the discipline. We will compare and contrast different layering strategies and products, allowing you to become an artist with composite resin. We will also discover how much time you should really be spending creating natural morphology, surface texture and polish, so that you can reproduce what you have learned in the class at home.

This is the second time that this course has been offered in the UK, avoiding a trip to Brazil for this excellent programme.

Due to the very high proportion of hands-on, places are very strictly limited.

We will cover different shade mapping and colour layering strategies, to allow you to build masterpiece restorations which utilise the optical properties of each...

IV Restorations

… from common aesthetic problems such as class IV restorations…

Peg Shaped Incisors

… to bigger challenges such as peg-shaped lateral incisors…


… and the use of opaquers to mask dark substrates before placement of direct composite veneers

Lateral Incisor Veneers

We will also discuss direct-indirect restorations, like these lateral incisor veneers…

V Restorations

… and will give practical experience of Dr Fahl’s technique for direct-indirect class V restorations...

Finishing Techniques

… as well as finishing techniques to perfectly reproduce natural surface morphology.
