Live-Events on the KaVo Kerr Booth

For many years, dentists have been presenting the use of our products live at the IDS KaVo Kerr booth. Once again, we offer you a comprehensive event program on a central stage and on the exhibition booth, which will present the workflow in practice live, answer your questions in an expert discussion or explain the handling of materials and devices in hand-on courses. It covers the entire range of dentistry: from diagnostics and planning through prophylaxis to direct and indirect restorations, endodontics and ergonomics.

Dr. German Gomez: Restorations that harmonize Esthetics and Art

Live Stage

Mimicking the natural tooth is a must for any anterior restoration, but the selection of materials available means you are often forced to choose between handling, aesthetics or strength. Harmonize features the exclusive ART (Adaptive Response Technology) that makes achieving strong and lifelike restorations easier than never before.

Hands-on course

The participant should be able to perform easily a front filling with Harmonize and understand where the possible errors can be done. He also should be able to see how easy the handling of the material is.

  • Do a HarmonizeTM front filling using OptiBondTM Universal
  • Understand the correct technique of layering the HarmonizeTM material
  • At the end do a  SonicFillTM lateral filling

Aims and Objectives

  • Understand the step by step of HarmonizeTM layering
  • Understand the possible errors
  • Understand the ergonomics of SonicFillTM

Professional development outcomes: The participant should be able to perform easily a front filling with Harmonize and understand where the possible errors can be done. He also should be able to see how easy the handling of the material is.

This exclusive technology enables easy placement in real one step application, improving the quality of posterior restorations avoiding voids, reducing shrinkage stress and ensuring an optimal marginal integrity of the tooth.

  • Comparison bulk and layering in time and ergonomics
  • Explanation of the SonicFill™ technology
  • Data and Science on SonicFill™ is shown

Hands-on course

  • Do a SonicFillTM filling using OptiBondTM Universal
