Spreading the Word about Cosmetic Dentistry
In 1982 Dr. Silverman embarked on a mission to teach dentists how to provide revolutionary tooth bonding
technologies and thus reduce the need to destroy healthy teeth using traditional methods such as crowns and
fillings. This memo (written in 1984) by the IPCO Corp., the first national dental laboratory to provide porcelain
veneers to dentists, addressed Dr. Silverman’s desire to help dentists learn how to provide more cosmetic dental
services, even after dentists attended his symposiums.
