Latest Update on Cements, Bonding, and Universal Composites
CE Credits: 3 Hour Lecture | Subject: Restorative/Cements, Bonding, & Composites | Recommended for: Dentists, Assistants | Prerequisite: This lecture is required for Dr. Coleman’s afternoon workshop.
We will discuss what matters most in composite and cement selection, depending upon location and occlusal load placed on the restoration. Materials and procedures for placement of the composites that will eliminate post-operative sensitivity will be addressed. The current state of resin bonding agents and the protocol for utilizing these materials in your day-to-day practice, not only for composite placement but for all of your bonded restorations will be covered.
In today’s busy general practice the most used materials are composites for direct restorations. The evolution of that category of materials is amazing, today’s composites and cements are light years ahead of the materials that we thought were great 20 years ago. The changes in the translucency and in the ability to match the existing tooth color are major advancements. This course is designed for the busy dentist who wants to stay current with the available materials and concepts of tooth-colored restorations.
