To achieve a highly predictable esthetic outcome that is enduring, form and function must be optimal. The clinician cannot forgo these parameters for the sake of a particular esthetic result. A clinical and technical perspective will be given using a systematic process that will ensure not only an esthetically pleasing restoration but also one that is functionally enduring. Attendees will leave this program with a unique understanding of the essential parameters of form and function and learn how to transfer clinical information to the technician in a way that will provide predictable functional outcomes. The presentation will also describe technical procedures that will ensure clinical success.
