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.

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.

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smiling” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. 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.
