Predictability and long-term success of posterior composite restorations continue to be a primary concern for many practitioners due to technique-sensitive steps required for proper placement. Direct resin restorations can be considered the cornerstone of a restorative dental practice due to the frequency that they are performed. These restorations are also a point of pressure for the dentist due to financial factors, such as downcoding from insurance companies and time issues due to the complexity of the process. New advancements in resin and photo-polymerization technology allow us to simplify these procedures without compromising quality. These restorations provide longevity for our patients and are a better alternative than amalgam fillings. This webinar will focus on new technology, proper adhesion protocols and the establishment of proper form and function while meeting the esthetic demands of today’s patients.
