Esthetic and functional adhesive treatments: Materials and techniques for everyday practice



Neimar Sartori

Break Down

Cutting-edge technologies, materials, and techniques have enhanced treatment options for both single restoration and full-mouth rehabilitation. Nowadays, clinicians can select biocompatible restorative materials that provide ideal function and long-term esthetic with maximum preservation of the remaining dentition. Understanding the basic principles of morphology, function, dental adhesion and esthetic dentistry, as well as indication and limitations of current materials and techniques, allow clinicians to perform simple and complex treatments with predictable outcomes. This lecture will provide clinical and scientific knowledge to select the bonding strategies to treat simples and complex cases.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will learn about:

  • Adhesive systems and challenges related to establish a long-term stable bonded interface.
  • Direct composite restorations for anterior and posterior teeth.
  • Materials and techniques for indirect esthetic and functional rehabilitation.
