Microscope enhanced minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry


The use of operative microscopes in restorative dentistry has been gaining momentum in recent years. Magnification improves the quality of care provided, both from an aesthetic and functional perspective. When adopting Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dentistry  (MiCD) in routine clinical practice, an operative microscope (OM) allows amplification, greater versatility in image magnification, excellent visualisation of the working field, the best lighting possible and a better working posture. Microscopes play a vital role in enhancing visibility for accurate diagnosis, tooth preparation, material placement and finishing of direct restorations.

This presentation will highlight the importance of incorporating operative microscopes when performing minimally invasive restorations in routine clinical practice. As material selection plays an integral role in the final outcome, a  detailed restorative workflow using bioactive dental materials will be shared to help achieve a higher level of aesthetics with enhanced predictability for direct restorations.
