Successful Composite Resin Restorations - Part 2 of 2

Description:
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.

Gerald Benjamin - (9/10/2015 9:50 PM)

As a clinician who has placed all of my posterior restorations using rubber dam AND with a bulk cure technique since 1992, I feel confident in taking exception to the approach advocated in this video. 1. The prep should have all cavosurface margins beveled 2. The entire prep should be air abraded with a Danville Prep Star which is a high powered air abrasion unit 3. The prep should be bulk filled and completely carved to an ideal contour and occlusal height 4. A #2 sable brush should be used as the final carving tool to pull the resin over the cavosurface bevel (margin) so that in effect, there is no definite resin tooth margin. This means that there is no margin to stain or break down. 5. TWO high powered Ultradent curing lights should be used SIMULTANEOUSLY from the buccal and lingual to cure the resin for at least 20 seconds. Curing in this manner (bilateral transenamel illumination advocated by Paul Belvedere) controls polymerization shrinkage to the highest degree and uses shrinkage to our advantage instead of a disadvantage. The final 20 second cure is from the occlusal surface. We have 15 year restorations that show little to no marginal breakdown and no leakage down the walls. This technique results in a full and complete depth of cure.

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.

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.

Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin Premium Member Content

Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin
For over 50 years dentists have been making instant esthetic transformations using direct composite resin. That technology has been enhanced by the latest nano composite materials. Although the past decade has seen greater use of ceramic materials in esthetic dentistry, direct bonding with these new composites is still a highly valuable procedure. This video will deal with correction of severe tooth discoloration using nano composites. Immediate composite resin bonding can act as either the ideal correction or as an extended trial smile so patients can live with their new smile as long as necessary.

Planning & Finishing Techniques

Planning & Finishing Techniques
Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations,…
