The ability to create like-like restorations has never before been closer to reality using direct techniques. For this however to become reality we need to have visual acuity like a technician and a knowledge base of the composite resins we are using to create such effects. An appreciation of dental anatomical features and finishing processes is also essential. This presentation discusses the modalities used to replicate nature in the most conservative fashion possible. The lecture will discuss the factors to be considered together with a practical demonstration to help achieve a blend of optical properties.
