The evolution of composite together with adhesive techniques, are meeting
the demands of patients, who are looking more often for less invasive
therapies combined with high aesthetic results.
The range of restorative options is getting wider, thanks to
materials that can adequately respond to mechanical stress, offering
also natural aesthetics when adhesion is performed with specific
The combination of these factors, it has in fact softened the border
between conservative and prosthesis, with a decrease of total indirect
restorations and an increase in partial indirect and direct restoration,
even in situations with abraded / eroded dentition and loss of vertical
The aim of this lecture is to present conventional direct and
indirect protocols, farther a new approach in cases with worn dentition,
highlighting the restorative aspects, raising the VDO, through a no
prep direct/indirect composite technique: the “Index Technique”.
- Learn all the step by step protocols to manage conventional adhesive
direct and indirect restorations on posteriors and anteriors
- Learn all the step by step protocols to manage warn dentition through a new “no prep” adhesive technique, “The Index Technique”.
