He will also touch on interdisciplinary aesthetic dentistry and occlusion in order to control key aesthetic factors together with periodontal, orthodontic and implant therapy for best aesthetic outcome and long-term protection of all-ceramic restorations.


  • How to manage key aesthetic factors for predictable aesthetic treatment

What is his lecture called?

When to do what: direct-indirect


What will I learn?

Dr Walter Devoto will go into detail about the advantages and limits of composite materials. He will teach how to choose the ideal material on the market from a mechanical and aesthetic point of view, and also when to choose an indirect or direct technique. Walter will present how to properly plan a patient's treatment, focusing on the quality of the end result and the working time to reach it. 


  • Advantages and limits of composite materials

  • Evaluate the use of composites in a conservative and prosthetic field for provisional and permenant solutions

  • How to optimise to the maximum the advantages of these materials



Newton Fahl

In 1989 he received the Certificate in Operative Dentistry and Master of Science degree from the University of Iowa, USA.


What is his lecture called?

Direct-indirect composite restorations - scientific and clinical basis


What is his lecture about?

One of the biggest benefits of light-curable composites is the fact that they can be sculpted intraorally to achieve the correct shape and colour. Newton Fahl describes how this does not always guarantee predictable aesthetic results, as composites may undergo colour changes depending on the kind of particles, brand name, photopolymerization source and finishing techniques. Due to its polymeric nature, composites tend to change over their clinical life span, which can be minimized by supplemental extra oral photocuring and heat tempering, which increase their longevity. This lecture will discuss the scientific and clinical aspects for the use of a direct-indirect technique as a viable alternative for Class V, Class IV, veneers and crowns with composites resins.


  • How to understand the ideal composite restorative for the anterior segment

  • Understanding the science and art of a direct-indirect procedure

  • Establishing the criteria for direct versus direct-indirect composite procedures
