From direct, semi-(in)direct to indirect
The biomimetic principle implies the utmost respect of intact hard tissues. In this regard, direct composite resin restorations are unmatched and provide the most valuable clinical service. The cost-effectiveness and minimally invasive approach of resin-based materials is also gaining popularity for CAD/CAM use. Semi-(in)direct CAD/CAM composite resin veneers may be considered when direct techniques are challenging to apply (e.g. diastemata, large shrinking volume with cervical margins in dentin) and indirect technique costs are not justified or simply not affordable by the patient. The ultimate veneer is that made by a dental ceramist, a fully layered indirect bonded porcelain restorations. They require the incredible crafmanship of a master dental technician and are the most costly ones but their beauty and longevity are unparalleled. This course will address the tehcnical details for all 3 approaches to anterior bonded restorations.
