This case based exercise was created for use in a preclinical course for the Department of Operative Dentistry for second year dental students in a PowerPoint format for lecture and simulation lab applications. It is used to establish a realistic esthetic clinical situation that may present itself to a dental practitioner. The exercise shows the student how the patient presents, the basics of information gathering for treatment planning purposes, treatment plan presentation and performing the subsequent treatment. This work is effective because it allows the dental student to relate to a clinical situation, determine appropriate restorative treatment options and implement the proposed treatment.
- To be able to gather the information needed to assess the given clinical esthetic situation and develop an appropriate treatment plan for the patient.
- To be able to determine esthetic treatment options to present to the patient.
- To be able to demonstrate the ability to prepare and restore direct composite resin veneers on the patient.
