Session details

Current composite resins allow us to make restorations that mimic the effects and opacities of the natural teeth. From more detailed techniques to simpler techniques, the market trend is towards the use of composite resins with a single opacity.

In the anterior teeth, the combination of composite opacities, shape, surface texture and finishing produces make a more natural and invisible restorations. In the posterior teeth, the shape and lines of the occlusal surfaces dictate not only aesthetic but also functional success.

At our disposal we have various materials to accomplish these results, depending on the sequence and the technique.
In this lecture different techniques of addition and modeling of composite resins will be covered, as well as a simple protocol of finishing and polishing so that all restorations always will look like natural teeth.
