Last week it was International Women’s Day, which makes me especially proud to share this absolute clinical blockbuster with one of the most inspirational Women in Dentistry – Dr Manrina Rhode.

In this very clinical episode of PDP, she teaches us about Veneers – she has been placing them for several years and has developed awesome systems in her practice for this.

The Protrusive Dental Pearl in this Episode is a Communication one! Let me know what you think.

We discuss:

  • Manrina’s journey with cosmetic Dentistry and veneers – how did she get the exposure early on in her career?
  • Ceramic vs composite veneers – composite has lifted off last few years, what has been your experience?
  • What percentage of her patients have pre-restorative orthodontics?
  • Which burs does she use for her preps? (Bur codes listed on Protrusive Dental Community: www.facebook.com/groups/protrusive/ )
  • What prep protocols does she use? What kind of stents?
  • How do you communicate shade with lab and the patient?
  • Does Manrina follow an ‘Occlusal Philosophy’ to ensure (para)functional longevity of her veneers?
  • How do you manage patients with ultra-high expectations?
  • How she uses Photoshop to show patient possibilities with their own smile
  • Why awesome temporary/provisional veneers are so important
  • How does she fabricate good looking, long lasting provisional veneers?
  • What is her bonding protocol?
  • How does she reduce mistakes during a stressful bonding appointment? Hint: teamwork!
  • She gives a very good veneer bonding hack towards the end!
