Advances in Composite Dentistry: A Blend of Artistry, Materials, and Technique
Today’s composite resins allow the aesthetic dentist limitless creativity in recreating human dentate form. At the core of every aesthetic dental restoration is tooth morphology…natures’ combination of elevations, depressions, opacities, and translucencies that collectively produce functional and aesthetic beauty.
In this course, Dr. Lowe will discuss techniques to create morphologically precise direct anterior and posterior composite restorations. A simple “histologic” layering technique will be taught with the use of composite tints to create lifelike direct composite restorations. The challenges of placing Class II direct composites (proximal contact and contour) and soft tissue management will also be discussed. Advances in composite technology such as bulk fill, sonic placement, low shrinkage, and other types of dentin replacements that are “biologically active” give the dentist a wide range of restorative solutions for patients. The use of different aesthetic materials in combination with finishing techniques will enable simple, yet “world class” placement of state of the art restorations for your patients tomorrow!
