Direct Restoration in Anterior and Posterior: Workflows, Protocols, New Materials and Techniques
Virtual Classroom
28 Nov 2020, 14:00 - 18:00 Online Event Area of interest: Restorative Dentistry

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the minimally invasive approach in direct restorations
  • Recognize the importance of a correct workflow in anterior and posterior direct restorations
  • Illustrate the techniques to restore anterior and posterior teeth in a direct way
  • Use the different materials in the best possible way
  • Minimize the finishing and polishing

Abstract

Adhesive technologies have contributed to changing the way dentists conceive restorations in dentistry.

Due to the improvements of materials and techniques, it is now possible to perform minimal preparations and to restore aesthetic appeal and function with a low biological and financial cost.

Reparability of resin composites is also highly appreciated as this allows restorations to be easily redone should the result not be perfect in the first stage.

Resin composites can be used in the daily routine for direct and indirect procedures, veneering, restoration of traumatized and endodontically teeth.

Moreover, performing aesthetic dentistry is nowadays one of the main goals of our profession. Patients are aware of the new technologies, and require treatments that are highly aesthetic, minimally invasive, repairable and not too expensive. Resin composite restorations can fulfill all these requirements. However, the correct protocols have to be implemented to achieve clinical success and obtain invisible restorations.
