Every day we are challenged with patients that have worn, broken or diseased anterior teeth. How will we restore them? Will they want a usual or customary result or will they be seeking something more superior? Are you giving your patients the option and do you know how to achieve the latter? Learn from the originator of the Simple, Less Simple and 3D characterized Layering system for anterior composites. An overview of the starburst bevel, matrix, various layering techniques and finishing & polishing will be discussed. With these four parameters you can achieve restorations that rival porcelain. Join us for this one hour CE webinar to see and understand composite artistry.


SMART Restorations Using Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) and Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC)

Despite caries risk assessment and therapeutic tools such as fluoride that have been in use for decades, dental caries remains a significant problem in many populations. The ADA Caries Classification System (ADA CCS) was published to classify all stages of caries lesions and to help discern when surgical restoration versus chemical remineralization is likely needed. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF), a unique chemotherapeutic agent used with or without glass ionomer cement (GIC), may well bridge the gap between remineralization and traditional restoration, especially in certain populations and situations. This CE webinar will review the science and proper placement of SDF and GIC restorations.

The quest for biofriendly, regenerative, durable, aesthetic restorations has come a long way in the last few years. We all seek materials that are easy to place with excellent clinical performance even when the oral environment is less than ideal. New regenerative materials not only offer clinical performance but also reduce bacterial microleakage while releasing the bio-stimulating ions calcium, phosphate, and fluoride.
