Non Prep and 0 Bevel Composites. How to Excel with Really Non-Invasive Direct Procedures

Try to answer this question honestly:

If you will need a restoration in your mouth, which characteristics should fulfil the material and the technique?

I am sure your answer will be straight away: Minimal invasive or hopefully, it should be applied without preparation of the teeth and it should integrate evidently perfect even in very thin layers

Well, I have good news, because composites are nowadays achieving exactly these characteristics if we have the necessary knowledge and skills! It is true that in the past there were many drawbacks with composite application. Complicate adhesion procedures, handling problems, color stability, excessive wear and surface deterioration. Especially for anterior restorations color stability, minimal surface roughness and final gloss are crucial.

Based on the previous limitations, the techniques that we learned in dental school were also not ideal. Most of us were taught, that whenever a restoration was placed in the anterior region, a bevel should be performed in order to get a better transition and that it was impossible to mask or to integrate perfectly without one.

Well, thanks to the new improvements in composite science, modern composite can mimic the value as well as the chroma of the teeth. With the variety of shades, opacities, and effects that modern systems are offering, no preparation or bevel is needed if we understand how to use them. This is especially practical in patients that present wear or have spaces to be closed since these teeth are caries-free in most of the cases.

The lecture will give guidelines regarding the choice of materials, show new techniques with composites in the anterior region, explain from a biomechanical perspective why it is better not to bevel in may cases and present a simplified layering concept and discuss the limitations of them.
