Posterior restoration success has much to do with the principles in primary anatomy that are often focused on and restricted to only anterior teeth. The art of layering posterior composites is not only a functional art, it reflects our desire to mimic nature in esthetics also in our practice of Bio-Emulation. Conversely, there are anatomical features of anterior teeth that are often neglected, just because they are out of direct frontal sight. When are teeth "too weak" for some restorative materials? How does one dial in the occlusion to maximize success using modern direct materials some never thought possible to use in extensive applications? How can we humanely and successfully place large restorations with a conservative slant in youngsters with massive structural deficits? What are the keys to success in posterior bonding besides esthetic? How do we minimize post-operative sensitivity and marginal leakage? How do we maximize shear bond strengths to the substrate, much of which is "unpredictable" dentin? We will review curing strategies for best long-term clinical success.

There are two great stresses clinicians feel in dentistry: lack of time and clinical failure. They are intertwined and often inseparable. When we are running behind, we feel every tick of the clock which often temps us to cut corners to catch up with the schedule. The pressure to produce can be taxing. All of this centers on our clinical dentistry and the necessity for dependable, symptom free, consistent adhesion. There are steps we can take to minimize the wasted time associated with failure by knowing what to look for in our restorative materials and how best to use them. This CE webinar will focus on procedures we do every day, fillings and crowns, and getting the most clinical success possible with great clinical success resulting in less time re-doing things. The least pressure is to do it right the first time.
