The restoration of posterior teeth is one of the main treatment modalities carried out by all practicing dentists. Patients are becoming more discerning and demanding, requiring their posterior teeth to be aesthetic rather than just functional. The clinician has 2 options on deciding which materials to restore decayed teeth or failing restorations, namely, whether to use a composite or a porcelain material. To add to this equation there are number of questions that need to be answered:
These are some of the questions that will be answered in this workshop. There will be parallel presentations, with evidence-based information and typodont preparations, going through a step-by-step technique on restoring the posterior teeth with composite and porcelain restorations. Dr Andrew Chandrapal will provide the posterior composite course and Dr Julian Caplan will provide the posterior ceramic course.
This lecture will have elements of enhanced GDC learning outcomes C: Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

An interactive day to highlight, educate and inspire delegates of the versatility of composite resin in the posterior dentition. This lecture and hands on session will show how steps can be taken to obtain predictable results, troubleshoot and safely push the boundaries of direct restorations in the posterior dentition. Attention will be paid to obtaining life-like restorations that function with occlusal principles in mind that are based around science and longevity. This interstice day will also highlight the synergy obtained between indirect ceramics and direct restorations.
