Bring your composite restorations to life with direct characterization
In order to mimic the esthetics of natural teeth with direct composite materials, various levels of opacity/translucency are required. Most importantly, however, the tooth shape has to be reconstructed properly. Moreover, in certain cases, additional characterizations, e.g. a crack line, are required to achieve a perfect transition between the artificial material and the natural tooth structure and bring your direct restoration to life. Clinical tips and tricks will be provided, which range from performing a simple layering technique to imitating hairline cracks in a sophisticated way.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- Tricks and techniques for better shade matching
- Anatomical build-up to restore the natural shape
- Detailed characterization of direct composite restorations
