Participants learn how to perform a polychromatically
layered, highly esthetic anterior restoration starting from a deeply fractured
The esthetic tooth preparation design will allow us to hide
the transition between the composite and the tooth. Special attention will be
given to a given to a multi-layered and multi-colored esthetic build-up
technique using different translucencies & shades. The ultimate goal is to
achieve a highly esthetic and invisible restoration.
Tips and tricks to create the perfect macro- and
micro-texture for natural light reflections from the restoration surface will
be and demonstrated in detail and then carried out by every participant.
A fundamental principle in replacing missing tooth structure
is to restore function and esthetic at minimal biological cost. The introduction
of resin composite materials and reliable bonding techniques have facilitated
innovative, conservative preparation designs for highly esthetic tooth coloured
restorations. Mastering anterior direct composite restorations is a necessity for
the contemporary clinician who appreciates and understands the art and science
of cosmetic dentistry.
Anterior composite restorations have an excellent esthetic
potential, very good to excellent prognosis, and a reasonable fee being charged
to the patient. In the esthetic zone, composite bonding procedures are
considered the most conservative and least invasive technique to return
missing, diseased, and unsightly tooth structure to enhanced color, form, and
function. However, the creation of naturally looking restorations can be quite
a challenge for the clinician.
