This program is designed for dentists who wish to improve their technique and increase their success rate with direct posterior composite restorations. Current evidence-based research supporting this technique will be presented. With proper technique, clinical success with direct composite restorations can be as predictable as amalgam. Proper selection and use of high-performance adhesive systems, composite resins, and light curing systems assure longevity. The course will review bulk fill utilization, as well as layering techniques for both enamel and dentin, intended to reduce the C-factor and stress from polymerization shrinkage. The advantage of sculpting restorations before curing will be illustrated. This time saving technique can often result in minimal adjustment, contouring, and polishing!
