Composite resins use pigment-based technology to match the polychromicity of natural teeth. Here, the challenge lies in adequately selecting dentin and enamel shades to mimic the optical characteristics of each layer in a restoration. Unlike other systems, omnichromatic composites are based on the structural color concept whereby a pigment-free, single shade can blend in with the surrounding tooth structure to produce seamless restorations. This CE webinar will discuss how this novel technology can effectively solve different clinical challenges with great esthetic success.

During this CE webinar, we will review:
• how light interplays with the tooth substrate and the resin composite through the structural color concept to create a blending effect
• how to use the different viscosities of an omnichromatic composite (flowable and regular) for best clinical results
• how a single-shade restoration can benefit from finishing and polishing techniques to boost the esthetics   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
