Vanini – Experience the creation of art in dentistry.

A unique opportunity  to experience  a masterclass in HFO / HRi composite set in the amazing surroundings  of Genova, Italy.

“Many experts do beautiful work but is it art?  What is the value of art if you do not teach others to do it? The tooth is not art but nature”.

Without doubt, this is a course that people will leave having gained a greater understanding of the nature of the tooth.

A unique chance to see the developer of the Enamel Plus HFO / HRi composite system and one of the leading restorative dentists in the beautiful Ligurian Riviera. The purpose of the course is to teach a modern and innovative technique for the conservative restoration of anterior teeth with composite materials.

This method implies a new and original approach, where indications for composite restorations, colour determination, compilation of the colour chart for the communication and documentation of the case, preparation of the cavity, adhesive techniques, layering, finishing and polishing are considered in a different way.

Dr Vanini also discusses the importance of material selection and placement relative to a balanced occlusion and its effects on patients’ posture.

The planning of each step makes this a standardised technique that gives reliable results. The teaching program is supported by the projection of a rich range of clinical cases that have been documented over the last twenty years, adding data from the research and analysis of the international literature, with videos showing the most important steps of the technique. Participants will also enjoy clinical demonstrations from previous patients and a hands-on session under the direction of Dr Vanini and his dental technician.

“I found the course absolutely brilliant and would highly recommend to anyone considering it. I can honestly say the whole experience from start to finish was world class.” Dr Charlotte Hallos.

“ It’s an excellent course with the “Master” of composites, in a stunning location with the friendliest team I have ever encountered, would go again!” Dr Nadia Kazmi.

“An excellent course which combines theory and a practical workshop leaving the student with knowledge to place a truly superior composite filling in the patient’s mouth.” Peter Mantel, Cheshire.

“Without question Lorenzo Vanini has set the standard for modern composite layering techniques. Getting hands on exposure to his treatment philosophies and case presentations, together with his expert hands on tuition really helped us build a new standard for not only the clinical case options at the practice, but also improve the teaching of modern composite techniques on our extensive modular courses at CADE. This course is a must for anyone looking to achieve invisible anterior composite restorations. Highly recommended…” Dr Bob McLelland, Manchester.

“I had been meaning to do this course for years. For me, most UK courses don’t compare with what can be learned with Dr Lorenzo Vanini. The first sight of Lake Como turns your senses to aesthetics. Dr Vanini explains how to interpret tooth colour with his patented colour chart, and how to transfer this into beautiful composite restorations.” Dr Derek Allen, Gloucester.
