In response to James Hasting: Currently all composites exhibit some degree of shrinkage. When restoring a posterior tooth because of the C-factor, the larger the shrinkage of the utilized composite, the larger the volume of material to be polimerized and the more surface the composite is in contact with at the time of polymerization, we increase: the likelihood of increased sensitivivity and enamel fracture. Below is the reference:
Suh BI, Feng L, Wang Y, Cripe C, Cicione F, de Rjik W. The effect of the Pulse-Delay Cure Technique on Residual Strain in composites.
Comp Cont Ed. Spec 155 1999; 20:4-12.
The physical and optical properties of the materials we use today are excellent. More important than the dentin shade(which routinely I use A1, A2, or B2/P60 fro 3M) is more important the enamel shades: I like Gradia posterior(GC), Venus T1,T2 from Heraeus or Miris 2 from Coltene.

A nice presentation. Where is the science behind slow curing"? Do you intend to provide a video that includes images of the steps rather than an audio overview? Can you also tell
us the type of direct materials that you use for dentin layer, occlusal stain and enamel layer? Thank you!

On the first case is actually arrested decay, this was verified after cleaning the decay with a round bur slow speed, checked with an explorer and diagnodent. The second case had a slight amount of residual composite. While it should have been eliminated, clinically no gaps were felt between the composite and the dentin.

please i want to know what is the yellow layer that in the floor of the cavity

Would like to see more "nuts and bolts" of how these restorations were placed and then finished/polished.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.
