Renowned cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Morgan, has recently shared his insights on the key factors that contribute to the creation of highly aesthetic composite restorations. With his international recognition and expertise in aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Morgan has become a leading authority in the field.
One of the crucial elements in fabricating aesthetic composite restorations, according to Dr. Morgan, is the ability to recreate the natural anatomy of the tooth. The handling properties of composite materials play a significant role in achieving this. Dr. Morgan personally favors the handling properties of Kuraray Noritake’s CLEARFIL Majesty composites.
In addition to natural anatomy, the polishability of restorations is another essential factor highlighted by Dr. Morgan. Well-polished restorations exhibit excellent color matching. Dr. Morgan has observed that Kuraray Noritake’s CLEARFIL Majesty ES Flow is particularly easy to polish, offering optimal results.
When it comes to taking shades, Dr. Morgan emphasizes the importance of considering the light-diffusion properties of natural teeth. Different shades may be required depending on the location of the restoration. Dr. Morgan finds the shade concept developed by Kuraray Noritake, which is lightness-based and approved by VITA, to be an effective approach for establishing the correct shade value.
In terms of bonding composites, Dr. Morgan relies on CLEARFIL SE Protect from Kuraray Noritake. This bonding agent not only exhibits high adhesive properties but also has an antibacterial cavity-cleansing effect, helping to prevent recurrent decay. Dr. Morgan also praises Kuraray Noritake’s MDP-Amide technology, featured in their one-step bonding agent, CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick. This technology eliminates waiting time and reduces errors in the bonding process.
Dr. Morgan highlights the numerous benefits of composite restorations, including the ability to practice minimally invasive dentistry and preserve natural tooth structure. These restorations also offer cost-effective solutions for patients, delivering aesthetic results.
