Learn the secrets of creating long-lasting and life-like direct restorations that meet the demands of the modern patient.

Patient demand for aesthetics in every restorative dental procedure has increased tremendously over the last few years. In response the dentist needs to deliver aesthetic and functional restorations in the same amount of time in a profitable and predictable manner. Resin composite is now the bread and butter restorative material for clinicians. Modern resin composite materials provide a large range of shades and opacities allowing the dentist to create and deliver highly aesthetic, functional and long lasting restorations.
This presentation will provide tips, tricks and hacks through a step-by-step approach for the use of direct resin composite restorations. This presentation will discuss: shade selection, layering style, cavity preparation for aesthetics, resin composite manipulation, layering, contouring and polishing. Procedures like, direct resin veneers, diastema closures, Class III and IV will be presented through clinical case examples to allow the dentist to predictably provide great aesthetic results. You will clearly see that using readily available composite materials, and through application of a few techniques, you can achieve the results that you and your patients demand. Direct posterior resin composite restorations will be explained step by step with the goal of achieving ideal proximal contact, form, function and sensitivity free restorations. Bulk fill materials will be discussed and techniques for their utilisation presented.
