The participants will learn a step-by-step application of direct resin for fractures of anterior teeth. The appropriate preparation techniques for fractured incisors to help camouflage the restoration and maximize retention will be reviewed and practiced. Concepts to create and utilize a customized lingual incisal matrix will be used in the hands-on exercise. Utilizing opaquing techniques, and a combination of appropriate Nanofilled and Microfilled composites, the participants will overcome the problem of ‘shine-thru’ commonly seen with other composite systems. A predictable, uncomplicated technique to restore the fractured anterior tooth will be taught in this hands-on program.

Course Objectives:

  • Bevel design and layering techniques to create invisible Class IV restorations
  • How and when to use Opaquers to create naturally appearing restorations
  • The importance of Microfill composites for ultimate esthetics in free hand bonding
  • Putting it all together; the utilization of a systematic approach utilizing Nanofilled composites, Opaquers, Tints and Microfills to create natural, beautiful and predictable anterior direct resin restorations
