 Dr. Nejad is renowned for his advanced biomimetic and cosmetic dentistry expertise. Cosmetic dentistry relies heavily on precision, meticulous planning, and clinical artistry. He carefully plans every detail of a cosmetic case utilizing Digital Smile Design and Photoshop Smile Design to accurately plan the desired outcome to ensure the best result for every patient is achieved. Biomimetic dentistry either preserves or replicates the natural tooth in feel, function, and look while preventing unnecessary treatments. It eliminates the need for root canals and other dental complications caused by excessive drilling, and its strength comes from extremely advanced adhesion. Dr. Nejad knows that precision restorations make all the difference for his patients, so he takes his time to meticulously plan his reconstruction strategies to ensure they get a bright, friendly, natural looking smile – one perfectly designed to meet their personal needs.

Today, Dr. Nejad is considered one of the top opinion leaders in the dental industry. He consults with companies from around the country, helping develop innovative dental materials and new products. He was the youngest dentist to become a member of the USC faculty, teaching alongside his mentor Dr. Magne at USC, training generations of future dentists in both Biomimetic and Cosmetic dentistry. Additionally, he teaches advanced training courses for dentists focused on expanding their knowledge of biomimetic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry by updating their practices, advancing their adhesion techniques, and learning the comprehensive cosmetic approach

 Dr. Magne graduated from the University of Geneva Dental School, Switzerland, in 1989 with a Med.Dent. He obtained his doctorate in 1992 and his Ph.D. degree in 2002. He received postgraduate training in fixed prosthodontics and occlusion, operative dentistry and endodontics; he was a lecturer at the same university from 1989 to 1997. From 1997 to 1999, he was a visiting associate professor at the Minnesota Dental Research Center for Biomaterials and Biomechanics, University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. After concluding two years of research, Dr. Magne returned to University of Geneva Dental School and held the position of senior lecturer in the Division of Fixed Prosthodontics and Occlusion

Dr. Magne is a recipient of multiple awards from the Swiss Science Foundation and the Swiss Foundation for Medical-Biological Grants. He was the recipient of the 2002 Young Investigator Award from the International Association for Dental Research. He is also the author of numerous clinical and research articles on aesthetics and adhesive dentistry and is an internationally known lecturer on these topics. Dr. Magne authored the book Bonded Porcelain Restorations in the Anterior Dentition — A Biomimetic Approach, which has been translated into eight languages and is considered one of the most outstanding books in the field of adhesive and aesthetic dentistry.

 

Synopsis

This lecture summarizes the most significant changes to restorative dentistry that have resulted from advancements in adhesive materials and techniques. Traditional prosthodontic preparation design, dictated by mechanical retention and material thickness requirements are unnecessary to successfully restore teeth with adhesion. Instead, tooth structure is conserved, and teeth are restored to full function through the strongly bonded adhesive interface. This paradigm shift allows for significant reduction in tooth preparation, minimizes sensitivity, preserves pulp vitality, minimizes the need for root canals and posts, and has a very favorable periodontal response
