Composite in the 3D World: Ease, Strength and Beauty

April 29, 2022
1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
  • Brian LeSage, D.D.S.

Have you recently updated your direct composite restoration skills? Our patients, with so many resources to evaluate our results, are demanding tooth preservation and highly esthetic outcomes. Discover how to use this additive technique to accomplish seamless composite restorations in anterior teeth. It is one thing to see, another to understand, but as a clinician one needs to implement. Learn this additive technique at a level seen mostly through our master ceramists and veneers. Composite can rival porcelain with some additional skills and techniques.

Learning Objectives:
1) Restorations and layering to achieve polychromicity, incisal translucency and appropriate luster.
2) Preparation design and the use of a PVS putty matrix.
3) Color, finishing, and polishing as it relates to creating seamless and undetectable restorations.
