Direct Restorations in the Anterior Dentition
This day offers a simple and predictable strategy to allow the busy dental practitioner to place beautiful, aesthetic lifelike class 1 and 2 direct composite restorations using only minimal shades of composite resin and instrumentation which is common to all dental offices. All of this within a realistic timeframe with technically uncomplicated protocols.
Direct Resin Artistry in the Posterior Dentition
Direct resins in the anterior dentition can produce functional, highly aesthetic and conservative restorations.However, with the rise of aesthetic dentistry in the media, the public as consumers are becoming increasingly discerning: they expect and demand the best. Dr Smithson aims to unravel and demystify concepts such as shade selection and micro and macro-anatomy and pull them together into a simple step-by-step protocol which includes treatment planning, fee setting, diagnostics, preparation, composite placement and finishing, allowing the average practitioner to achieve outstanding results on a consistent basis.
