Trouble-Free Highly Esthetic Composite Restorations.

Description:
Direct composite restoration is the restoration of choice due to its high esthetics – a major demand of today’s patients. However many issues are still evoked regarding technique sensitivity and restoration durability. During this webinar we will discuss through pictures and HD videos, a methodological approach on how to consistently succeed highly esthetic trouble-free and durable composite restorations. We will shed light on the main pitfalls that lead to a compromised restoration and present substantial steps to avoid these complications.

Nice presentation.

ISLAM DEHIS - (6/8/2013 1:04 AM)

DO NOT NECESSARILY AGREE WITH THE TREATMENT PLANS.... BUT I APPRECIATE THE HIGH TECHNICAL SKILLS INVOLVED.

Nassib Fares - (3/10/2012 4:06 AM)

Thank you again, the matrices I am using are 0.03 mm dead soft "Hawe" from Kerr, normally I use one type and one or 2 shades of the same composite brand, Venus diamond from Heraeus or Gradia direct from GC,to build all the restoration, whether it is Class 1 or class 2 or class 5.

Very nice really enjoyed the presentation could you pls mention the materials you have used?

Raymond Benitez - (3/4/2012 7:40 PM)

Very nice results. I would like to know what brand of composite you used in the class 2 and marginal ridge part of your prep before you transformed it into a class 1? What type did you use in building up your cusps in the class one? Was this the same type of composite in your class 5 case? Thank you. Ray Benitez

I enjoyed the presentation I would like to know who makes the thin bands you use (and if there is a particular type you prefer) Thanks Gil Garalnick

Nice presentation.

I really enjoyed this presentation! Besides the soft flex discs, do you use any other polishing materials or burs for finishing?

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
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.

Dr. Richard Coates shares with us the step by step methodology of increasing vertical dimension in a 27 year old with severe erosion, and then the steps he took to restore this very difficult case from posterior teeth to anterior. He details all steps taken through to finishing and polishing of the direct bonded composite restorations. The Kois occlusal deprogrammer was key to success in this case and fabrication and features of the deprogrammer are also explained in this webinar.

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.

“Finally” - Predictable Indirect Conservative Posterior Restorations
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. New technologies for the enamel-dentin adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials (composite resins and porcelains) allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines for obtaining predictable indirect posterior restorations through the evaluation of a correct biomechanical approach rather than giving just a “trendy” adhesive approach.

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations
This paper introduces a new technique for creating Class II posterior composite restorations - the centripetal build-up. This technique replaces the lost tooth structure from the periphery towards the center of the cavity, thereby achieving better marginal adaptation to the gingival floor. Since overfilling is rare, rotary finishing is minimized. This method allows the creation of long-term aesthetic posterior composite restorations, while utilizing conventional auxiliary (ie, metal matrix bands…

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.
