Providing patients a functional, esthetic and long-lasting restoration is every clinician’s objective when placing direct composite resins. Recreating natural tooth structure is not always an easy task, as placing this material is not only time consuming, it also requires precise technique. Oral health professionals who use restorative materials will be pleased to learn about the most recent developments that allow for easier placement.

Authored by Robert A. Lowe, DDS, FAGD, FICD, FADI, FACD, FIADE, “Clinical Update on Composite Restoratives,”  explores how innovations in composites, including low-shrink and bioactive materials, allow practitioners to place composite restorations in less time and with improved long-term outcomes. This continuing education article, sponsored through an unrestricted educational grant from Shofu, details the clinical challenges and techniques associated with adhesive dentistry.
