Restoring a Lateral Incisor to Proper Dimensions After Orthodontic Treatment
By Daniele Larose, DMD, AAACD

Many dentists choose porcelain over composite for this type of situation as the blending of the restoration within the natural dentition often creates a challenge.

This article demonstrates how a few simple techniques with minimal layering can empower the dentist to mimic nature quickly and effectively. This offers patients a quick, beautiful and conservative result using composite resin in a single appointment. Since most Class IV restorations are performed to handle in an emergency situation, this is a very important technique for any cosmetic dentist to master.
