SURFACE: THE FINAL TOUCH Creating Natural Contours, Texture, Luster and Surface Color in Dental Restorations  

The final touches of contour, texture, surface colorants, and luster can take average-looking dental restorations and create an exceptionally esthetic result. These steps are critical to the success of dental restorations whether it is composite or ceramics. These skills are more necessary now than ever as monolithic restorations are now the predominate type of indirect restoration. The lecture will cover the esthetics of the individual tooth i.e. the unique form and texture patterns of anterior teeth and color distribution patterns that can be somewhat mimicked with surface color, and detail the very specific armamentaria and techniques to create ideal “surfaces” both in color and finish specifically with the newer generation Monolithic Materials Machined Composites, Cubic Zirconia, and High Strength Glass Ceramics. As a bonus, the presentation will cover specific instruments to get Ideal surfaces even in wax.
