Direct Resin Artistry in the Posterior Dentition

  • Course is virtual
  • Starts Expires 4/13/2026

Direct posterior resin restorations are a day-to-day procedure for most dental practitioners. However, many resins perform poorly in comparison to silver amalgam: sensitivity, marginal staining and secondary caries are common and recurrent problems. Many of these failures are a result of simple operator errors, which occur when the restoration is placed.

In this course, Dr. Jason Smithson will explain a simple and predictable strategy that allows the busy practitioner to place beautiful, esthetic direct composite restorations. This process uses minimal shades of resin and instruments common in all dental offices; all done within a realistic timeframe with uncomplicated protocols.
