Prof. Louis Hardan, head of the restorative and esthetic department at Saint Joseph University Beirut-Lebanon.

He graduated dentistry in 1989 and continued his post-doctoral education at Saint Joseph University; he obtained a certificate for basic science in 1993, he completed his specialization in restorative and esthetic dentistry in 1995, and completed his PhD in oral biology and materials in 2009.

He was an active member of the Lebanese Dental Association (LDA) (2006-2009) and was assigned as a general secretary of the LDA in 2009.

At the present, he is an associate professor at Saint Joseph University and owns a private practice in his home town Byblos.

He is an honorary and active international Styleitaliano member.

He is the inventor of Smile Lite MDP (Smile Line, Switzerland) a device to take high quality dental pictures with a mobile phone and Posterior Misura (LM instrument) an instrument for direct posterior composites.

Prof. Hardan has many publications in international journals and has given several lectures on esthetic, restorative dentistry and mobile dental photography.


Direct Composite Restoration: Simplified Techniques and Materials to Restore with “Style”

Lecture: 04 October 2018

Lecture Abstract:
Ever since their introduction in the 1970s, light-activated resin composites have shown many shortcomings such as poor wear resistance, poor dentin marginal adaptation, problems of shade matching in esthetic cases and mainly the shrinkage during the polymerization. This lecture will develop how to choose and use our adhesives, what is new in restorative materials, what are the low stress composites and the most innovative technologies, how to do the shade matching, the polymerization techniques and how to perform composite esthetic restorations from anterior to posterior using simplified and repeatable techniques and this to achieve esthtetic success.


Workshop Dental 1.A: Composites

05 October 2018, 09:00 - 12:30
Grand Hyatt Hotel & Residences Emirates Pearl, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Target Audience: Dentists
4 CE Credits | HAAD 4 CME | DHA 2 CME
Abstract & Objectives
  • Exercise on preparation and cementation
  • Diagnosis an treatment planning of the cases
  • build own shade guides from composite recipes through layering technique with my shade guide tool according to shade A1,A2,A3,A3.5,B1.......
  • Then work on models with full teeth and make a silicon index which will help in building up the composite restoration later with the right anatomical contour.
  • Prepare a class 4 on anterior central insicors showing the technique of beveling to mask the fracture line
  • show the step by step bonding technique with preference of selective etching technique to prevent postoperative sensitivity
  • show and suggest isolation techniques from adjacent teeth during filling
  • step by step layering technique to show the participants which opacity to choose and start and end with along with the style italiano concept in layer thickness to get the most natural matching shade to Vita shade guide.
  • visualize on the models final results of treatment and late they will prepare teeth on different way as window or butt joint
  • Clinical tips on diastema closure with composite fillings.
  • anatomical characterization of the restorations [mamilons ,incisal edge translucency]
  • finishing and polishing techniques of the restoration to achieve high lust like enamel emphasizing on oral hygiene measures ,post operative instructions and follow up plans
