Most dentists still think of composite as filling material that should be packed into boxy preps and cured in layers. That is simply the wrong way to use composite. In this fast-moving and entertaining lecture, Dr. Clark will demonstrate the art and science of monolithic injection molded composite dentistry using modern cavity preparations, ultrathin anatomic clear matrices that can completely wrap the tooth and heated multi-viscosity resins.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • know the six keys to world class contacts 100% of the time in a Class II.
  • understand how to injection mold to treat black triangles, peg laterals, fractured teeth and diastemas.
  • know how to safely warm composite, and why.
  • understand deep margin management.
  • conduct ultra glossy stain proof anterior restorations.
