Dr Dipesh Parmar: Providing composite veneers with confidence
Among the highlights at this year’s BACD Annual Conference will be a comprehensive full-day lecture and hands-on session with Dr Dipesh Parmar, entitled “An Introduction to Mini Smile Makeover”. The session will provide a complete immersion into different layering techniques to master the restoration of a peg lateral, and promises to explore “composite veneers and the different techniques available to maximise on form, function and aesthetics, without compromising health”.
An award-winning cosmetic dentist, Dr Parmar specialises in providing advanced aesthetic and restorative dentistry, orthodontics and dental implant restorations. He received an MSc in Orthodontics (University of Warwick) and has co-authored a number of peer-reviewed articles.
An internationally renowned educator in minimally invasive direct aesthetics, Dr Parmar believes that the market for resin veneers as an alternative to more “invasive” ceramic veneers has grown exponentially, which he partly attributes to the power of social media.
Dr Parmar explains: “Social media provides a platform for dentists to exhibit their craft and show potential patients exactly what is achievable in cosmetic dentistry. It is, therefore, important for the ethical cosmetic dentist to be able to confidently offer composite veneers as an effective treatment alternative.
“During my lecture I will demonstrate how, when and why composite veneers are a great minimally invasive cosmetic solution by outlining classic layering techniques to create anterior resin masterpieces, explaining the right protocols to create optimal proximal contours and tight contacts, and finishing and polishing processes designed to emulate natural tooth morphology.
“Delegates will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the different techniques used for the execution of composite veneers, including freehand, index-guided and indirect methods. They will come away with valuable insights into ways to deliver composite veneers that are both aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting.
“I’m looking forward to the BACD Annual Conference, it is a fantastic event both from an educational and social perspective. I’m definitely looking forward to catching up with everyone that I haven’t seen in what will be two years.”
The organisers of this year’s conference say: “In addition to Dr Parmar’s stand-out lecture there is a whole host of engaging talks to look forward to. These include sessions presented by Drs Nitzan Bichacho, Mirela Feraru, Miguel Stanley, Pascal Magne, Gurvinder Bhirth, Andrew Chandrapal, Minesh Patel, Ian Buckle, Stewart Beggs, Chris McConnell, Lucas Pedrosa, Nik Sethi, Sanjay Sethi and Riaz Yar.
“This year will see the long delayed coming together of clinicians, while adhering to the latest social distancing guidelines and infection control measures, of course. They will also gain access to an exclusive tradeshow where they can view the latest offerings from leading manufacturers and suppliers, and get valuable insights from professional advice and guidance.
“Additionally, the black-tie Gala Dinner at the National Museum of Scotland on Friday evening of the event will provide the perfect setting for networking and catching up with friends and colleagues after such a difficult year. It’s always a night to remember, but this year there is even more to celebrate.
