This program integrates didactic material and hands-on experience with anterior and posterior composites in addition to “no flow flowables.” Participants will explore the technique of layering and blending composite shades to insure an aesthetic result using the latest state-of-the-art composite resins. Suggestions on the use and securing of a matrix, as well as finishing and polishing will  be discussed and demonstrated. Intra-occlusal splinting will be included using resin impregnated quartz fibers. Participants will have a first-hand opportunity to try these techniques on models.

  • Understand the layering concept  for applying composite.
  • Learn to properly finish and polish restorations.
  • Learn how to splint mobile teeth
