Event Details

Achieving excellent aesthetic and functional results when restoring anterior teeth

Beginning with a lecture covering the relevant physical properties required of composites to be used for restoring anterior teeth, this one-day program 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 opacitie of composites will be demonstrated together with simplified techniques for build-up, finishing and polishing. The practical exercises in this program will give participants the opportunity to restore typodont teeth utilising a multi-shaded, aesthetic composite system and the layering techniques presented in the lecture. At the completion of the program, attendees should have a greater understanding of the newer composite technologies available to achieve excellent aesthetic and functional results when restoring anterior teeth.
