Trouble-free Highly Esthetic Composite Restorations

Description:
Direct composite restoration is the restoration of choice due to the combination of esthetics, affordability and conservation – a major demand of today’s patients. However many issues still remain regarding technique sensitivity and restoration durability. This presentation will address via pictures and video, a methodological approach on how to consistently succeed with highly esthetic trouble- free and durable composite restorations.

Probably no one still looking at this but I have to comment anyway. Beautiful work but given the amount of time 70-90 mins to restore 3 teeth with multi-surface restorations I hat dot ask the question but how much was the patient charged? I hate to ask but we many of us are in private practice and the cost of providing care to this extent would not be profitable.

Beautiful work, Nassib....regarding the composite carving instrument have you used the double ended carvers I did for Hu-Friedy? They are the #5 and #6 Goldstein Composite Carvers and one end is specifically for the disto-occlusal of bicuspids and molars. Makes finishing so much easier.

The Cycle of Tooth Preservation Via Stress-Reduced Direct Composite Restorations
This lecture will provide clinicians with an overview of differing biomimetic protocols and techniques to predictably restore the anterior and posterior dentition using a minimally invasive approach. Increasing interest has been developed on “Life-like” restorations also known as biomimetic restorations. These are either porcelain or resin based restoration that can be performed on the anterior and posterior areas of the mouth. They may adopt both an indirect and a direct technique. The common characteristic is that they are low stressed and highly bonded restorations able to reproduce the functional and optical characteristic of the natural dentition.

Successful Composite Resin Restorations - Part 1 of 2
Amalgam has been a durable successful dental restorative material; however this material has recently come under question due to its mercury content and disposal. Composite resin materials range from flowable to highly filled condensable type viscosities. There are many factors that influence the success of posterior composite resin restorations. This presentation will identify the factors that limit success (size, patient type, caries risk, shrinkage, curing light) and the materials that can be successfully used to restore posterior teeth. Beginning with flowable materials and their clinical application the presentation will discuss the open sandwich technique, use of flowable posterior restorations, sectional matrices and fluoride, calcium and phosphate releasing materials.

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites Premium Member Content

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites
Despite the popularity of posterior composites, it is a topic that still creates questions and frustrations for many clinicians. Our goal is to place these restorations with ease and success to create long lasting results. We will discuss preparation design, material selection, matrices, and placement techniques. One of the most common questions I get is about predictably creating tight contacts, and we will look at several techniques to ensure this happens.

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.

Adhesive Dentistry: From Direct to Indirect Restorations
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. It is very important to have a synergy between the clinician, the dental technician and the patient and to make the right use of the protocols and a flow chart to address all patient needs. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.

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.
