Participants learn how to perform a polychromatically layered, highly esthetic anterior restoration starting from a deeply fractured incisor.

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.

·Control of Value, Chroma, Translucency and Opalescence.

·Anatomical build-up techniques to restore the tooth shape.
