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?

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx Premium Member Content

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx
Thru the direct Aesthetic Provisional Application technique, the provisional will serve as a preparation guide, aesthetic guide to both patient and lab as well as an occlusal guide. This gives the practitioner total control over the case, gives the patient a true visualization of what the permanent teeth will look like and gives the laboratory an accurate tooth position to be copied into final form. The d-APA is done with flowable compostite in the patient’s mouth thru a series of additions and reductions to the teeth to gain final position. Although challenging, the technique becomes very rewarding by placing artistry and control into the hands of the dentist.
