What do they say about us: Componeer

Ortho and Kids - Interview - Semi directs
7 Jan 2016

Creating teeth in a simple way with a trustworthy method that required as few layering skills as possible was my dream, the prefabricated composite solutions came to the market some years ago making this a reality with the componeers. We would like to share with you a collection of cases in black and white, that will be published little by little during next year, colouring them, one by one, not only with actual colors but with the tips and tricks to achieve these. Together with each one of these cases, a testimonial of the people who have successfully attended to the Styleitaliano workshops about componeer and changed their vision about semi-direct dentistry.

Dear Francesca (course organiser), thanks for your continuous efforts, I was able to use the Componeers and from my side I am extremely satisfied, as well as from my patients, and this only because you gave me the opportunity to attend several courses of Doctor Lucchi.

Cara Francesca (organizzatrice) grazie per il tuo continuo impegno, ho potuto utilizzare le faccette Componeer con soddisfazione da parte mia e dei miei pazienti solo perché mi hai dato la possibilità di seguire vari corsi con la dottoressa Lucchi.

In the last course held in Liguria I had cleared many fundamental points for the right use of veneers. I would like still to go in the deep for the cases of VD lifting with the new technique proposed by Dr. Lucchi and Dr. Saracinelli, our course time in Santa Margherita was too short. I wish that we could have continuing courses. Alessandra Boccato.

All ultimo corso tenuto in Liguria ho ulteriormente chiarito molti punti fondamentali per una corretta realizzazione delle faccette.Vorrei ancora approfondire il loro utilizzo nei casi di rialzo di dimensione verticale secondo la nuova tecnica ideata dalla dr. Lucchi e il dr. Saracinelli, il tempo a S.Margherita non è stato sufficiente. Spero ci possa essere un seguito, cari saluti. alessandra boccato

I would like to warmly thank you for the invitation and if other course will be planned I beg you to keep me informed. Heartily. Dr. Lucio Bruno Magnano.

In reference to the course held from October 1st-4th 2015 about Coltene/Componeer veneers I would like to transmit my thankfulness to you and to the teachers for the optimal outcome of the course. It was useful for me to improve the placement technique and characterisation of the veneers. The teachers demonstrated to be extremely prepared and caring when demonstrating the management of the technique, as equally happened with the organisers. Please keep me informed for other similar events. Best regards, Dr. Federica Poli

In riferimento al corso avvenuto in data 1-4 ottobre 2015 sulle faccette Componeer/Coltene vorrei trasmettere i miei ringraziamenti a Lei e ai docenti per l´ottima riuscita del suddetto avvenimento. Mi è servito per migliorare la mia tecnica di inserimento e caratterizzazione delle faccette. I docenti si sono dimostrati veramente preparati e cordiali nella dimostrazione e nella gestione della tecnica come del resto Lei nel coordinamento gestionale. Mi tenga informata per altre analoghe manifestazioni. Cordiali saluti Dott.sa Federica Poli

Hello Patrizia, sorry for bothering you but I wanted to buy a Sand Blaster and use it with Glycine Powder, what do you suggest? Better with attachment to the unit or to the turbine? Is there any need of special tips for the glycine? Congratulations again for the course. Bye bye. Massimiliano Cranchi.

Ciao Patrizia, scusa il disturbo, volevo comprare la sabbiatrice e la vorrei usare con la glicina, cosa mi consigli? Meglio con raccordo alla poltrona o al posto della turbina? Servono beccucci particolari per la glicina? Complimenti ancora per il corso. Ciao Massimiliano Cranchi.

Hello Patrizia, how are you? I am not sure if you remember me, I was at the componeer course at Catania, today I had the opportunity of making my first case and I would like to have the pleasure of watching your outcomes, and maybe to have any advise to get better, I would like to know as well how to warm up the composite, because I used to do it in the baby bottle warmer, but I find it quite hard, so I am wondering how to warm it more effectively. Waiting for your answer, have a nice weekend and see you soon. Cetty Irrera.

Ciao Patrizia come va? Non so se ti ricordi di me, sono stata al corso dei componeer, sabato scorso a Catania, oggi ho avuto l´opportunità di fare il primo caso e mi farebbe piacere farti vedere il risultato,e magari avere qualche tuo consiglio x migliorare, inoltre vorrei sapere come riscaldare il composito, xke io l´ho riscaldato con lo scalda biberon ,ma l ho trovato un po´ duro ,quindi mi chiedevo come poterlo riscaldare meglio. Nell´attesa d una tua risposta t auguro un buon fine settimana..a presto! Cetty Irrera

Hello Patrizia, I would be interested in doing you Componeers course, I made already the theoretical course in Pavia with your colleague from Bergamo, but because you are the best, for the practical part I would love to see you in action. My question is, how to reach the course, with whom should I register? Should I contact directly Coltene? It will be my most pleasure if you can take me as your disciple, I have seen your work and there is nothing similar, not even close. Ruth Delli Carpini.

Ciao Patrizia, mi interesserebbe fare il corso con te per le Componeers, ho già fatto a Pavia il corso Teorico con il collega di Bergamo, ma siccome tu sei la migliore, per la parte pratica vorrei vedere te in azione.cMi chiedevo come devo fare per raggiungere ciò: presso chi mi iscrivo? devo chiamare Coltene direttamente? Mi farebbe un piacere immenso se tu volessi accogliermi fra i tuoi discepoli, ho visto i tuoi lavori e non c n´è di uguali, nemmeno lontanamente vicini. Ruth Delli Carpini.

This case needs no explanation, just read the testimonial

HI Patrizia, I allow myself to tell you some words, first because I feel the right to tell them. Today I cried of joy and thankfulness. I have lived many `intense´´situations where I have learnt that every human being is a universe with many potentials and that has the right to be free, serene and happy, and that is the message I want to deliver. Now, when I laugh I see a new beginning in me, these teeth have given me a symbolic value that goes beyond the aesthetics, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Chiara, your patient.

Ciao Patrizia, mi permetto di dirti qualche parola perché sento di poterlo fare. Oggi ho pianto di gioia e gratitudine. Ho vissuto molte situazioni “intense´´ dove ho imparato che l´essere umano è un universo con tante potenzialità e che ha il diritto di essere libero sereno e gioioso, ed è il messaggio che voglio portare. Adesso quando rido vedo un nuovo inizio per me, questi denti hanno un valore simbolico che va oltre l´estetica, e ti dico grazie dal profondo del cuore. Chiara, la tua paziente.
