Restorative Course - 1

Mastering Anterior Direct Composite Restorations

Dr. Anton Lebedenko, DDS – Liechtenstein

Register Now

Abstract:

Course participants will learn the most important principles for the reconstruction of natural aesthetics of the anterior teeth with direct restoratives. Beginning from the proper bevel preparation, through optimal bonding procedures, towards layers stratification, polymerization and characterisation options, concluding finishing and polishing, dentists will go through the whole way to achieve unmatched aesthetics, making the direct composite restorations invisible. Detailed systematic procedure, as well as corresponding tips and tricks will be covered in the presentation and then carried out by every participant during the hands-on session.

 Introduction:

Direct composites allow restoring of the missing tooth structure with minimal intervention. At the same time, anisotropic structure of the tooth requires the use of the material with different levels of opacity/translucency, It goes without saying, that the layering technique is mandatory in this case to meet natural aesthetics in terms of optical properties and tooth shape, as well. In certain cases even additional characterisations, like a crack line for example, must be reproduced to get a perfect transition from an artificial material to the natural tooth. That is why the creation of a naturally looking restoration can be challenging for the dentists.

 Learning Objectives:
  1. Aesthetic tooth preparation techniques to hide transitions.
  2. Latest bonding procedures
  3. Shade and shape control
  4. Anatomical layering sequence
  5. Clinical tips for higher quality and longevity of direct restorations

Who should attend?

  • General Practitioners
  • Specialists

Workshop Procedure and provided materials:

Every participant will fractured upper central incisor (Class IV), using silicone template technique. Optimal beveling of the margins will be demonstrated, and then accomplished by everybody to improve aesthetic integration of the composite restoration. Then the optimal bonding procedure will be done. After that, the participants will build up the tooth with several layers and translucencies of the composite material. Different characterization techniques will be demonstrated and then conducted. After finishing and polishing to a high gloss, the restorations will be evaluated.

 A: Provided materials and equipment (for each participant):

  1. Micromotor with handpiece and burs
  2. LED curing light
  3. Model with teeth
  4. Sculpting dental instruments
  5. Dental adhesives and composite materials
  6. Polishers

B: Procedure and demonstration steps:

  1. Making of the silicone key
  2. Tooth preparation and isolation
  3. Bonding procedure
  4. Anatomical layering from palatal towards labial side
  5. Using of the special opalescent layer
  6. Minor characterisations (e.g. white spots, crack lines)
  7. Finishing and polishing
