This in-your-office, hands-on exercise will teach you to build up peg laterals and large Class III restorations. Direct resin composites are a very important part of any dental practice nowadays. These restorations provide patients with minimally invasive restorations that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, longevity and function. The participants will be guided step-by-step through shade selection, tooth preparation, bonding, matrix adaptation, creating proximal contacts, layering, contouring and polishing to conservatively, predictably and successfully build up peg laterals and large Class III preparations utilizing direct resin composite.
