Accreditation Case Types 4 & 5:
It is important that each individual demonstrates the ability to replicate the primary, secondary and tertiary anatomy of anterior teeth, therefore any facial matrices or aids, other than an incisal putty matrix will not be allowed for the fabrication of direct resin veneers.
Credentialing Photography Lighting Statement:
All photographs submitted for Accreditation and Fellowship examinations should be taken utilizing direct undiffused lighting sources (i.e., without using softboxes, pocket bouncers, filters, diffusers, etc.). Failure to employ proper lighting techniques may result in photographs that lack critical and subtle color, shape, and textural elements. Photographs that fail to satisfactorily show these natural and restorative elements may prevent the Accreditation Examiners from being able to adequately evaluate the case and will result in the case being failed due to improper photographic protocol.
