UP College of Dentistry Auditorium


Dental restorative materials have changed rapidly and the elective-care market has grown significantly in the past years.  Currently, there is an abundance of resin composite systems catering to esthetics.  Composite is now the most frequently utilized esthetic restorative material.  Porcelain is also very popular but the preparation for porcelain restoration is more aggressive.  By understanding the materials’ properties and selecting the appropriate restorative materials, the dentist can emulates the physical and optical characteristics of dentin and enamel.  Only then would one be able to achieve maximum esthetic results in anterior restorations.

With the improvement of new adhesive systems, it’s now possible to restore mal-positioned, discolored, badly shaped, or fractured teeth directly. Direct composite veneers also gained tremendous popularity over the past few years because the procedure can be done in one single appointment for a reasonable fee with acceptable results.  When done properly, direct composite veneers continue to be a viable treatment alternative for numerous patients.  Although direct bonding of composite resins has been used to improve teeth appearance, it requires time and artistry by the dentist to achieve the desired results.  Alternate treatment plans may included porcelain laminates or full porcelain coverage.

This presentation describes how to treatment plan and complete a smile analysis to control esthetic outcomes.  Case presentations will illustrate how to identify colors on a tooth and demonstrate the use of tints and opaque modifiers.  The cases include a simple and predictable 3-layering technique through the correct implementation of composite materials and freehand bonding techniques for the fabrication of a direct resin veneer restoration.  In addition, this presentation also describes a conservative technique of cosmetic re-contouring associated with direct composite bonding, as a way of closing diastemata and re-contouring peg-shaped teeth.  Various Porcelain systems and their optical properties will also be discussed.  Finally, a brief update of the latest generation of LED curing lights will round off the presentation.
