Improving Proximal Contours for Direct Resin Restorations By Dr Gregori Kurtzman

  1. 1. Clinical Case<br />Improving proximal contours for direct resin restorations.<br /> By Dr Gregori M. Kurtzman, DDS<br />
  2. 2. 1<br />V3 Ring straddling the Wave-Wedge placed interproximally.<br />
  3. 3. 2<br />Triodent's V3 Rings, molar (green) and premolar (yellow).<br />
  4. 4. 3<br />Stacked Triodent V3 Rings allowing placement at adjacent proximals.<br />
  5. 5. 4<br />Preparation for a MOD direct restoration on a mandibular first molar with an open contact on the distal.<br />
  6. 6. 5<br />Sectional matrix placed on the mesial/distal along with Wave-Wedges and V3 retainer rings are stacked.<br />
  7. 7. 6<br />Application of Bond 1-SF adhesive applied with the frocked tip on the syringe to all prepared surfaces and scrubbed for 20 seconds.<br />
  8. 8. 7<br />Application of Bond 1-SF adhesive applied with the frocked tip on the syringe for 20 seconds and vigorous rubbing of the prepared surfaces.<br />
  9. 9. 8<br />The appearance of the prepared surface following application of Bond 1-SF demonstrates a glistening surface on the dentin. <br />
  10. 10. 9<br />The adhesive is light cured for 10 seconds.<br />
  11. 11. 10<br />Cone burnisher used to adapt Artiste shade B3 Dentin to preparation.<br />
  12. 12. 11<br />First layer of Artiste following light curing, showing development of lobes within the dentin layer.<br />
  13. 13. 12<br />Artiste Maverick posterior pit tint applied with an endodontic file to accent the pits and fissures then light cured.<br />
  14. 14. 13<br />corn burnisher being used to adapt the Artiste shade B enamel layer.<br />
  15. 15. 14<br />Restoration is light cured.<br />
  16. 16. t<br />15<br />Direct resin restoration following placement of Artiste nano composite prior to finishing.<br />
  17. 17. 16<br />Retainers, Wave-Wedges and sectional matrices removed.<br />
  18. 18. 17<br />Direct resin restoration following contouring with finishing carbides and diamonds.<br />
  19. 19. 18<br />Direct resin restoration following finishing and polishing, which was accomplished with Fini finishing system.<br />
