Bringing Composite Resins to an Art Form in the Anterior Segment Bringing Composite Resins to an Art Form in the Anterior Segment

Author(s):

Summary:

Composite resins lie among the many materials that have been contemplated with an exponential growth in terms of improvements on their composition and their manner of application. Presently, knowledgeable and skilled clinicians can perform adhesive direct procedures so as to mimic the physical and optical characteristics of the natural dentition. Current composite systems provide better strength and polish than early formulations while offering a wider shade range that closely reproduces the color properties of natural dentin and enamel. Many manufacturers have become aware of the need to meet the esthetic demands of professionals and their patients, and have endeavored to launch products that provide unrivaled esthetics and long lasting results.
