AACD Happy Hour: Edward McLaren, DDS, MDC, "SURACE: The Final Touch: Creating Natural Contours, Texture, Luster and Surface Color in Dental Restorations"
The final touches of contour, texture, surface colorants, and luster can take average looking dental restorations and create an exceptionally esthetic result. These steps are critical to the success of dental restorations weather it is composite or ceramics. These skills are more necessary now than ever as monolithic restorations are now the predominate type of indirect restoration.
This happy hour lecture will cover the esthetics of the individual tooth i.e. the unique form and texture patterns of anterior teeth and color distribution patterns that can be somewhat mimicked with surface color. As a bonus, the presentation will cover specific instruments to get ideal surfaces, even in wax
