The story of the preparation through the APT technique.
Basic Analog workflow for the anterior bonded porcelain restorations

Tooth preparation A to Z by Dr.Gurel (VIDEO)

Designing the smile

Mock up – wax up

Preparing silicon indexes in the ab or chair side

Analyzing the smile with the indexes

Aesthetic Pre-recontouring – APR (if needed)

Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporaries

Evaluation of the aesthetic through APT

Evaluation of the occlusion through APT

Evaluation of the phoetics through APT

  • tooth preparation through APT
  • using depth cutters
  • using extra fine diamond burs
  • finishing the margins
  • customising your Arkansas stone burs for finalising gingival margin preparations
  • using the softlex paper discs during the preparation

Handling exposed dentin at the time of the preparation

Impression making – using retraction cords (if needed)

Provisionals (discussing different techniques depending on different indications)

Rechecking the provisionals for aesthetic, functions, phonetics


Importance of the mock-up (analog-digital)

Presenting he case to the patient – the direct mock up
The mock up as the navigator
The mock up as the diagostic tool
Classification and different types of direct mock up (for complicated cases)

The art of the Personalised Smile Design / REBEL

Different personalities ,different choices
Personality traits (Hippocrates)
Diffrerent cultures, religions, backgrounds, traditions however a single universal VISUAL LANGUAGE (Carl Jung)
Understanding the basic shapes and their perception
Analysis of the face and personality (simplified for daily clinical evaluation and use)
How to relate the Visual language and the shapes, to the facial anatomy and personality
How to clinically apply the technique

Live REBEL Digital 3D Smile Design

In this LIVE section Dr.Gurel will be demonstrating LIVE on a patient, how to make an Indirect Mock up through the brand new 3D Digital software called REBEL.

A new Smile Design will be created and tried on the patient according to the REBEL proposal.

The steps for the REBEL software protocol and workflow will be demonstrated;

  1. Make a very simple mock up ONLY on a CENTRAL , and make a full face picture of the patient
  2. Digitally scan intra-orally and send the 3D STL file to the REBEL digital wax-up center
  3. Within less than an hour the 3D STL file of the new smile design proposal will arrive
  4. Then 3D printed design will be ready for next day



Tooth preparation techniques for complicated situations

  • Additive vs subtractive conditions
  • How to deal with the protruded teeth
  • How to handle the teeth that are to much palatally positioned

Hands-on course on Models for all participants

Mock up ( according the REBEL proposal)

Preparing the translucent silicone impression through the wax up model

Preparing the silicon index

Checking the smile with index

Aesthetic Pre-recontouring – APR

Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporaries – APT

  • evaluation of the aesthetic through APT
  • tooth preparation through APT
  • using depth cutters
  • using different diamond burs
  • finishing the margins

Modifiying the translucent silicone impression for the provisionals

Making the provisionals using RSVP technique

Rechecking the provisionals for aesthetics


Live application of REBEL 3D Digital Wax-up

Analysing the 3D printed models from REBEL
An impression of the 3D printed model is made with a silicone impression
And an APT is made through the silicone impression in the patient’s mouth
Checking the final outcome LIVE on the patient


Bonding-adhesives – All the details we need to know in daily clinical practice
Update on Dental adhesives
The hybrid layer
Ingredients of the adhesive systems
How to classify the adhesive systems in their most simplistic way
Total etch vs. Self etching
Advantages vs. Disadvantages, when to use which one?
Possible post op problems
Light sources (important or not)
