The use of composite resin material as a direct restorative for posterior restorations has dramatically increased in the marketplace. With self-etching technology emerging as a viable alternative to traditional techniques and the development of new technology to assist clinicians with bulk fill techniques, it is easy to get confused and fall behind. What materials will you advocate for use in your practice? Should practitioners change their current techniques? What preparation design will you utilise?
This lecture will provide step-by-step techniques and materials that allow clinicians to place beautiful, life-like posterior restorations in an efficient fashion. Several tips and tricks will be presented and practiced that will increase practitioner’s quality and predictability on a daily basis.
