Composites in the 3D World - Ease, Strength and Beauty - Part 2 of 3

Description:
Composite is the most versatile cosmetic restorative material we have in a comprehensive, esthetic minimally invasive dental practice. It is easily sculptable to gain the proper contour, has great strength were clinically indicated and can attain the appropriate color, luster and polish for a beautifully seamless restoration. Revisit skills in direct composite restorations such as layering with the aid of a matrix, which allows for a more ideal 3D undetectable restoration. Custom characterization and finishing and polishing will also be included. Cerec and its advanced technology has opened a whole new window to explore in the 3D world. A new completely innovative concept of 3D indirect composite restorations will be shared. Using Cerec technology to scan, design and mill a core is the starting point. Then using many of the composite skill of the direct world and one is able to attain the 3 C's of composite-- ideal color, contour and creativity. Join me as I explore the 3D world of composites.

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping Premium Member Content

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques
This study compared the margin profile and surface roughness created by the tips of four different finishing instruments: fine diamond, dura white stone, tungsten carbide, and ultrasonic diamond-coated tips (UDTs). The aim was to determine which of these instruments produced the smoothest finish and created the most evenly contoured margin characteristics. It was hypothesized that UDTs would produce a rougher dentin surface than a fine diamond bur, that a tungsten carbide bur would provide a smoother finish than a fine diamond, and that the dura white stone would produce an intermediate finish.
