In today’s competitive market, many patients are seeking to achieve an esthetically-pleasing smile, yet may have limited resources. The option of composite resins may offer the patient the most simple and cost-effective way to achieve an esthetic change in the mouth. Even though composites have reached widespread use within the dental community, their proper use is not always as simplistic as it might seem. This program will offer conservative solutions based on clinical fundamentals, coupled with the integration of current technologies and materials, to yield simple, reproducible, and efficient techniques for composite restorations.
