Simplified Esthetic Anterior and Posterior Composites Image
Today’s restorative dentists need to enhance their cosmetic skills in order to achieve growth and profitability in their practices. This combination lecture and hands-on workshop will demonstrate a simplified method of restoring the fractured maxillary anterior central incisor with composite resin using the intraoral composite mock-up technique. Additionally, as a result of the latest nanomicrohybrid injectable composite technology, dentists can now quickly, easily and predictably treat posterior teeth, cervical (abfraction) lesions and incisal wear with beauty, strength and function beyond patient expectations. Improvements in composite polymerization shrinkage, reduction of internal stress and occlusal wear, have made low-wear injectable composite a great aesthetic option. This program will also demonstrate, in a step-by-step fashion, how to place sensitivity-free posterior composites quickly and easily, so that an esthetic result with a high success rate and predictable outcome can be achieved.
