*POSTPONED* – Simple, Sexy Posterior Composite Restorations

Sunday 27 February @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Course Outline:

The replacement of posterior Class II amalgams has become the bread and butter of the modern dental practice. With the advent of modern bonding adhesives as well as bulk fill materials, do we have clear guidelines on what to use? How to use it and when? Is there a compromise to speed? In this day and age, patients are increasingly demanding about the aesthetics, not only with anterior direct restorations, but also posterior. Learn how to lift your game in posterior direct composite aesthetics and build your practice with techniques that are not only efficient, but will extend the success and prognosis of your direct restorations.
