These restorations provide patients with minimally invasive restorations that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, longevity and function; they are personally rewarding and cost effective. However, dental practitioners face difficulties while bonding and placing these restorations. The 5 axioms: shade selection, layering style, cavity preparation, layering and contouring & polishing will provide the practitioner with a step-by-step approach to produce predictable and highly esthetic anterior resin composite restorations in everyday practice.

 The Following Topics Will Be Discussed:
