Materials and Techniques to Improve your Direct Restorations
6.5 CE Credits | AGD Subject Code: 250
Direct restorations have several advantages over indirect restorations such as allowing a more conservative tooth preparation, allowing the dentist more control over the shade and contours of the restoration and often saving time and cost for the patient. Contemporary dental composites have mechanical properties to allow their placement in large restorations and sufficient gloss to be placed in many anterior applications. This course will review current materials used for direct restorations and the techniques to place and finish these materials.
- Bonding procedures and placement techniques for composite restorations
- Contouring of posterior composites to achieve excellent adaptation and tight contacts
- Finishing and polishing of anterior restorations
- Dentists & Associates: $499
- Bring a staff member for: $200

2024 Aruba Dental Conference - Day 3
Dental Materials Update: Through the Eye of a Clinician-Researcher
Adhesive dentistry allows clinicians to prepare less tooth structure and create strong, esthetic restorations for their patients. Success in adhesive dentistry requires the clinicians to be knowledgeable about the resin and ceramic materials used to create restorations as well as the adhesives used to bond these restorations to tooth structure. Also, the materials and instruments used to manipulate these restorations allow clinicians to produce restorations with functional anatomic form and sufficient surface luster for esthetics and biologic health.
The goal of this presentation is to review the current evidence on the materials and instruments used to perform adhesive dentistry with direct resins and indirect ceramics. The presentation will show clinical cases as well as research performed at the UAB School of Dentistry. The goal of the presentation is to offer tips and tricks that can immediately be applied by any restorative dentist.
- Learn methods to use bulk fill composites for posterior composites
- Compare different sectional matrix systems for Class II composites
- Select resin composites for anterior composites
- Compare different polishers for anterior composites and indirect ceramic materials
- Review the different types of dental ceramics and the methods to bond to them
- Learn how to prevent and remove stains caused under ceramic restorations
- Select a bur for cutting off ceramic crowns
- Learn how to perform microabrasion to conservatively remove anterior discoloration
