This in-your-office, hands-on exercise will teach you to build up peg laterals and large Class III restorations. Direct resin composites are a very important part of any dental practice nowadays. These restorations provide patients with minimally invasive restorations that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, longevity and function. The participants will be guided step-by-step through shade selection, tooth preparation, bonding, matrix adaptation, creating proximal contacts, layering, contouring and polishing to conservatively, predictably and successfully build up peg laterals and large Class III preparations utilizing direct resin composite.
This presentation will introduce and discuss the use of composite resins for addressing anterior esthetic challenges through a direct-indirect approach, in which restorations are directly sculpted and indirectly bonded. The technique congregates the artistry and the layering concepts of direct composites with the advantages of indirect protocols. The benefits of the technique include high-quality margins and optimized control of form and final color with luting resins, in addition to being a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. During this Hands Online Live program, participants will perform each step of this technique through to completion, with live demonstrations by the instructor. Dr. Fahl will answer questions from participants throughout this fast pace interactive course.
Closing midline diastemas with composite can be a challenge with achieving proper width, marginal staining, gingival emergence profiles and overhangs. Matrix bands can produce long flat contacts and wedges may lead to unsightly black triangles. This live, step-by-by step interactive webinar focuses on Dr. Bob Margeas's simplified technique that quickly establishes ideal width, proximal contact and contour without removing any tooth structure and requiring minimal finishing. Participants will also learn and perform polishing and surface texturing that will further produce predictably natural-looking long term restorations.
Treating the single central is one of the most difficult procedures that a dentist has to do. Even more difficult is the discolored central due to endodontics, trauma, or tetracycline staining. This hands-on course will teach you how to use opaquers to raise the value of the tooth, without creating too bright of a tooth. You will also learn the use of tints to create incisal translucency. These techniques can be incorporated immediately into your practice for profitability.
Through this hands-on, live-streamed course, participants will be guided through the technique of producing predictable, beautiful life-like Class II restorations mimicking the natural tooth in every way. In addition to demonstrating how to achieve zero post-op sensitivity and natural proximal contacts every time, this restorative technique produces ideal occlusal anatomy and contacts prior to final light curing!
