Description

Composite is the most versatile material we have in modern, aesthetic restorative dentistry. It can be used for direct restorations in anterior and posterior teeth, cements, post and cores, build-up material, attachment for orthodontics, and temporary or prototype restorations. It is universal, easy to manipulate, has good strength and exhibits optical properties when layered properly that revivals natural tooth structure. This program will focus on Class I, II and IV direct restorations. Discussion will include pearls from a clinician who has relied on adhesive dentistry and composite materials for over 25 years in his full-time private practice in Beverly Hills, California.
