Creating aesthetic direct composite restorations that precisely match existing tooth color is a clinical challenge that can be difficult for even the most experienced clinician. Shades for most composite materials rely upon 1950’s technology – the VITA Lumin Shade Guide. Clinical reality is that many composites do not precisely match the VITA Shade Guide let alone each other! This can be extremely frustrating for the clinician, especially for a patient that is “picky” about aesthetic matching. Having a universal, single-shade composite system that can take the “guesswork” and frustration out of shade selection and match a majority of clinical situations, is something that restorative dentists will welcome! In this CE webinar, you will be introduced to the first of its kind...a truly universal single-shade composite system. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Predictability and long-term success of posterior composite restorations continue to be a primary concern for many practitioners due to technique sensitive steps required for proper placement. Direct resin restorations can be considered the cornerstone of a restorative dental practice due to the frequency that they are performed. These restorations are also a point of pressure for the dentist due to financial factors, such as down coding from insurance companies; and time issues due to the complexity of the process. New advancements in resin and photo-polymerization technology allow us to simplify these procedures without compromising quality. This CE webinar will focus on proper adhesion protocols and the establishment of proper form and function while meeting the esthetic demands of today’s patients.

Bonding all of our indirect restorations can pose several clinical dilemmas from anesthetizing the patient at the seat appointment to how we remove the restoration when it is time to be replaced. Our modern cements have evolved along with the indirect restorative materials that we use today, allowing us to take advantage of the benefits of cementation, optimal handling properties and clinical outcomes. In this CE webinar we will look at today's glass ionomer based cement systems as well as self adhesive cementation materials and techniques. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )
