Class II Direct Resins: New Choices in Matrix Systems - Part 1

Description:
This 4 part lecture provides the viewer with options to improve the proximal contacts on Direct Class II resin systems. Dr. Glenn van As introduces and discusses some of the new choices available in matrix systems as they relate to enhancing successful contact development in class II direct resin restorations. In addition, he also shares some pearls about the choice and use of wedges for these restorations.

It is interesting for the speaker mentions the matrix that is a small piece comparing with circumferential matrix. Why is it good of using a short matrix?

Hi Maurice: Thanks for the comment on my video. In my practice I try to do more direct resin restorations under the scope for 3 surface or less restorations and something indirect for greater than 3 surfaces but again it does depend on whether there are cracks visible under the scope or whether the restoration weakens buccal or lingual walls. I have to do more direct resin restorations in my general practice simply because not all patients can afford full coverage or indirect reatorations all the time. In bevelling the occlusal surface, using the microscope at 8-12 X mag and filling in layers I reduce but of course do not eliminate the issues you have mentioned that do occur more often with direct restorations than with indirect. I do wish that I could do more indirect restorations but this is the nature of the beast in my practice and I hope the video might help provide some tips for those who like myself do the odd direct resin restoration. Thanks for the question Maurice and all the best to you and the wonderful crew at dental XP and at your awesome dental office. Truly amazing where you work!! Happy new year. Best Wishes Glenn

How many of our XP members are performing direct posterior resin composite restorations?
Any long term maintenance issues with micro leakage, marginal integrity or staining??

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.

Planning & Finishing Techniques

Planning & Finishing Techniques
Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations,…
