3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity Premium Member Content

3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity
Mastering composite artistry is the most challenging tooth replacement procedure clinicians are asked to preform. It requires the clinician to understand the optical, physical, handling and mechanical properties of a resin filled with quartz, silica and glass. Combining these attributes to reproduce the natural dentition three dimensionally in contour and color is our goal. Adding a bit of imagination, the clinician can create restorations that are brilliant and ultimately seamless and undetectable.

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP)
The lecture will cover some simple Photoshop techniques to enhance a smile digitally to present to the patient and motivate them to accept treatment. This lecture will mainly focus on the the step-by-step process of how to turn the 2-dimensional Photoshop smile design into a 3D Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEP’s) the patient wears to verify esthetic and functional acceptance. A very efficient technique using a new highly flowable but highly filled micro-hybrid that uses an injection molding tray technique will be demonstrated. A full arch composite bonding can be done in one hour with this technique. This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.
