Composite Coaching – Hit Home Runs with Direct Resin and Gain Financial Freedom

Apr 10-11, 2014

Are you tired of inconsistent results from your lab techniciansAGD Credits? Are your laboratory expenses eating away at your overhead? If you want to take greater control of the restorative dentistry in your practice, then this two day workshop is for you!

This presentation is designed to enable dentists to positively affect the level of dentistry that they are able to provide to their patients on a daily basis. The lecture will focus on the skills and materials necessary to place direct anterior and posterior resin restorations that virtually disappear in the mouth. Utilizing the latest in Nano-technology composite materials, layering techniques will be reviewed that not only create properly shaped restorations, but will also offset the tooth stress issues related to polymerization shrinkage.

Techniques to create tight, appropriately contoured Class II restorations will be reviewed. Layering techniques utilizing nanofilled and microfill composites, opaquers and tints will be taught to create invisible Class IV and other anterior direct restorations. Contouring and polishing techniques of anterior and posterior composites will also be reviewed in detail.

Course objectives:

This presentation is designed to teach the dentist the appropriate materials and techniques necessary to create beautiful, life-like restorations for anterior and posterior direct resin restorations.

The participant will learn:

What materials are critical for creating excellent restorations with anterior free hand bonding The techniques necessary to blend composite to tooth structure to hide Class IV fractures Answers to questions regarding Self Etch adhesives; how to make them better and where not to use them A novel technique to create exquisitely contoured Class II proximal walls Putting it all together; the utilization of a systematic approach utilizing Nanofilled composites, Opaquers, Tints and Microfills to create natural, beautiful and predictable anterior direct resin restorations
