Clinical application of modern restorative materials and techniques for the restorative dentist
23 Nov 2022 Online Event | 20:00 GST (UAE) | 19:00 KSA | 18:00 CET Area of interest: General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry



Over the last few years, the advancements made in composite resin materials and bonding technology have made possible the routine use of these materials in anterior and posterior teeth. These improvements have significantly modified the operative techniques and possibilities for the restorative dentist. During the webinar, the following will be addressed and discussed by means of interesting clinical case reports:

  • The use of ultrasonics for cavity preparation
  • The benefit of air abrasion
  • Protection of adjacent teeth during cavity preparation
  • Predictable interproximal contacts 
  • Deep margin elevation technique for direct restorations
  • Reattachment of fractured fragments on anterior teeth 
  • Single shade vs layering technique for more complex restorations

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the impact of using ultrasonic instruments and air abrasion on the outcome of the final restoration
  • Be aware of the indications and survival rates of direct composite restorations
  • Know the steps required to achieve predictable proximal contacts and a natural contour
  • Understand the relevance of the C-factor, shrinkage stress and the flowable bulk-fill concept for direct restorations 
  • Know and be able to apply a simplified layering approach for highly esthetic restorations in anterior teeth
  • Understand the advantage of the margin elevation technique for direct restorations
