Simplifying Aesthetic Anterior Composite Resins – FULLY BOOKED

Friday 25 October 2019 @ 4:45 pm - Saturday 26 October 2019 @ 1:00 am

Achieving Excellent Aesthetic and Functional Results

Beginning with a lecture covering the relevant physical properties required of composites to be used for restoring anterior teeth, this one-day course explores the concepts of colour as they relate to tooth shade selection. As there are presently so many options on the market, the importance of opacity/translucency as distinct from colour alone will be explained to assist participants in selecting composite systems for use in their own practices.
Finally, the multi-layered approach to restoring anterior teeth using varying opacities of composites will be demonstrated, together with simplified techniques for build-up, finishing and polishing. The practical exercises in this course will give participants the opportunity to restore typodont teeth utilising a multi-shaded, aesthetic composite system and the layering techniques presented in the lecture.

Course Topics:

  • Current composite resin technologies and systems designed for aesthetic, single and multi-layered build-up techniques.
  • Shade selection – understanding colour and teeth.
  • A simplified approach to multi-layered anterior composite restorations.
  • Finishing and polishing techniques for microfill, microhybrid, and nanocomposites.
  • Can composite resins restore adequate function and aesthetics?
  • Indications for choosing between composite and ceramics.
  • Are composite restorations cost-effective for the patient and the dentist?
  • Clinical examples to illustrate techniques for easier practice.

At the completion of the course, attendees should have a greater understanding of the newer composite technologies available to achieve excellent aesthetic and functional results when restoring anterior teeth.
