Ron, Thanks for interducing me to cosmetic recountouring as pretreatment.
If possible would you consider a web seminar or course for indepth tips on Countouring.
Thanks

Thanks, Dan, Cosmetic contouring remains as the all time one hour patient pleasing procedure I or virtually any dentist can perform. Ron

Ron, this procedure, I call it "enamelplasty", is an essential confidence builder. Your pt experiences your expertise and understanding of esthetics with this non-invasive procedure. As you mentioned, the trust level rises significantly. Enjoyed your presentation a lot. Dan

Jose, I do use Soflex discs first but then I like the impregnated wheels and discs by Brasseler

Very interesting report. You show us other effect of cosmetic contouring. It must help our daily clinical practice. Thank you.

Excelent report Dr. Goldstein and incredible change in a short way, let me please ask you about the contouring, at the end what do you use to polish the enamel? It´s enough with soflex discs?... Thanks and congratulations, regards.
