esin Tints and Opaquers: Underutilized and Often Overlooked
Thursday, March 23 @ 7:00pm CT | Presented by Bruce Crispin, DDS, MS

Members earn 1 CEU

Resin tints and resin opaquers are high chroma or highly opacified minimally filled flowable composites.  They were designed to be used to modify the color and opacity of composite restorations in order to provide an optimal esthetic result.  Because they are not heavily filled, they must be covered or incorporated into a more durable composite.  Historically, most dentists do not use resin tints or opaquers on a regular basis.  It is the presenter’s opinion that the traditional scope of indications has been too small.  The purpose of this happy hour will be to share several uses for resin tints and resin opaquers and to justify why every esthetic restorative practice should have them in their armamentarium.
