Direct composites provide the clinician with the ability to provide excellent aesthetic results with minimal tooth destruction in a very efficient manner.
In this hands- on lecture, you will be shown how to achieve excellent aesthetic standards in your everyday dentistry using direct chairside composites.
Handling composites correctly can provide excellent aesthetic outcomes, which will be shown using case examples in this hands-on lecture. Using the palatal shell created from a silicone index and layering dentin shade on this palatal shell is a worldwide known technique. However, many clinicians are facing some difficulties. You will be shown how to layer with maximum 2 or 3 shades to have life looking restorations. Further, the focus will be on finishing and polishing procedures to have both texture and lustre on the created superficial enamel which may compete with ceramic restorations.
