The layering of a composite with varying degrees of opacity and translucency is vital to creating a naturally esthetic restoration. In this live-streamed interactive course, Dr. Bob Margeas will guide participants step-by-step through his meticulous layering technique and polishing regimens that predictably produce a Class IV composite restoration that blends mimics the adjacent teeth.
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.
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 online course provides the participants with many priceless pearls to predictably shape and polish anterior composite restorations to the level that they can rival the beauty of the most esthetic porcelain restorations every single time. Dr. David Chan will discuss and demonstrate in detail the predictable techniques to develop the primary, secondary, tertiary tooth anatomy in composite restorations for any tooth shape imaginable utilizing a few simple tools and seamlessly polish those restorations within a few minutes.
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.
