I would like to know about the glaze as well

Panagiotis Philippou195 - (10/30/2011 11:06 AM)

why the restorations must be slightly darker than the tooth?

A brilliant 3 part instruction on how to create outstanding composite restorations, covering all aspects extremely well. The starburst bevel may well change my life! A glaze is placed over the comps at the end of the first session, I assume that is a bonding agent eg prime and bond or does Brain use something else?

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.

Visagism: The Art of Dental Composition
The aim of this article is to present a novel concept: Visagism. The Visagism concept helps dental clinicians provide restorations that account not only for esthetics, but also for the psychosocial features of the created image, which affect patients’ emotions, sense of identity, behavior, and self-esteem. These factors, in turn, affect how observers react to patients following treatment.
