Natural morphology and layering technique for direct composite resin restorations. Update on indications, diagnostic approach, tooth preparation and luting of bonded porcelain restorations. Update on bonded posterior restorations including
This course will be an intense lecture and hands-on experience for all practitioners wishing to upgrade their skills in posterior bonded restorations using direct, semi-(in) direct and indirect techniques. The growing demand of patients for aestheti or metal-free restorations, together with the ongoing interest of the dental profession for tissue-preserving materials have led to the development of posterior adhesive restorations. It is now clearlu established that a new biomimetic approach to restorative dentistry is possible through the structured use of “tooth-like” restorative materials, such as composite resins and porcelain and the use of hard tissue bond, such as enamel and dentin bonding. Scientific studies and clinical evidence have validated the use of bonded tooth-coloured restorations. We have entered the “post-amalgam era”. This course will present the foundations of this evolution.
Based on maximum tissue preservation and the “biomimetic principle” (biomechanics) a model for the optimal use of current restorative systems will be presented using scientific evidence and clinical experience.
