Day 1

Aesthetic treatment planning: photo/video, smile design, digital and analogue
* Patient communication
* Principles of smile design
* Photo/video protocols for smile makeovers.
* Portraits and intraoral photos.
* Intraoral scanning (demo can maybe get a scanner in)
* LAB communication and shade
* Transferring of smile design to wax-up (digital and analogue) and mock-up
* Additive wax-up and mock-up
* Silicon indexes for preps and mock-ups 

(a lot of chat on day 1 but we could get them to do this on their computer with basic smile design software and on typodonts with luxatemp freehand and using a stent? Maybe start the preps?)

Day 2

100% Hands-on program

* Step-by-step preparation protocol through the mock-up
* Scanning of preps (demo)
* Temporary veneers.
* How to take provisional veneers off
* Try-in of final restorations.
* Bonding protocols for porcelain veneers
