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.

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?

Today's composite resins have truly evolved to the point where you can several 'best' choice for any restorative situation. Using various case studies, this course will demonstrate the use of a family of low-shrinkage composites and proven techniques to provide many examples of the applications of different types of composites to provide excellent results. Additionally, we will discuss how to use the photography of these cases to create awareness to current, new, and potential patients through various marketing techniques.

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.

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects
To asses the influence of conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) vs resin-modified GIC (RMGIC) as a base material for novel, super-closed sandwich restorations (SCSR) and its effect on shrinkage-induced crack propensity and in vitro accelerated fatigue resistance. A standard MOD slot-type tooth preparation was applied to 30 extracted maxillary molars. A modified sandwich restoration was used, in which the enamel/dentin bonding agent was applied first, followed by a Ketac Molar or Fuji II LC base, leaving 2mm for composite resin material. Shrinkage induced enamel cracks were tracked with photography and transillumination. Samples were loaded until fracture or to a maximum of 185,000 cycles under isometric chewing, starting with a load of 200 N and gradually up to a maximum of 30,000 each...
