COMPOSITES in the 3D World: Ease, Strength and Beauty

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.

Good technique ,I use the new uVeneer system with the Cerec and save a lot of time

I got a little lost on how you are doing your ceramic/ composite veneers. I would assume that you are basically making a ceramic base and customizing colors and textures with composite. I am wondering about the strength of the porcelain composite interface and overall longevity compared to full porcelain veneers.

It was so difficult for me to finish this 33 minutes presentation... I think this technique is so critical, and difficult, a lot of lab work dentist should do with composite on the stone model... I think veneers are more convenient to me.... but what i like really is the "double bevel technique",, what he called "Star Burst Bevel"

Federico Nolte 821 - (12/17/2013 8:09 PM)

a lot of questions. how do you cement the cerec layer to the remaining dental structure. do you use an adhesive between the cerec layer and the composite layers? when cutting back to adhere composite do you use refrigeration like water or? impressive I,m beginning to learn about cerec thats why that kind of questions Federico Nolte Santillán, Cancún México hansnolt@prodigy.net.mx

3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity Premium Member Content

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.

Creative Restorative Correction of a Unilateral Crossbite
Although orthodontics is usually the best solution for cross bite there are patients who wait too long to start treatment and now want an immediate esthetic solution. The patient in this video wanted a great smile for her sister's wedding so the treatment plan consisted of direct composite resin bonding in the brightest shade we could produce. Although the patient agreed to later undergoing orthodontic treatment to improve her occlusion the compromise restorative plan included improvement of the unilateral cross bite.

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smiling” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. Predictable and repeatable results can be achieved through materials and clinical practices that, on one hand, preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic price. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines in both direct and indirect techniques for esthetic restorations through the evaluation of techniques and materials in order to reach correct, standardized and long lasting evidence based clinical results.

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.
