Course Abstract

The evolution of composite together with adhesive techniques are meeting the demands of patients, who are looking more often for less invasive therapies combined with high aesthetic results.

The range of restorative options is getting wider, thanks to materials that can adequately respond to mechanical stress, offering also natural aesthetics when adhesion is performed with specific protocols.

The combination of these factors, it has in fact softened the border between conservative and prosthesis, with a decrease of total indirect restorations and an increase in partial indirect and direct restoration, even in situations with abraded / eroded dentition and loss of vertical dimension.

The aim of this lecture is to present conventional direct and indirect protocols, vs a new approach in cases with worn dentition, highlighting the restorative aspects, raising the VDO, through a no prep direct/indirect composite technique: the "Index Technique".

Learn all the step by step protocols to manage conventional adhesive direct and indirect restorations
