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?
