The Proximal Precinct-Optimal Class 2 Resin Restorations with Dr. Jason Smithson


The class 2 direct composite restoration is the most common day-to-day operative procedure in general dental practice; that being said it is often technically challenging. Procedural errors commonly result in white lines; open margins; sensitivity; overhangs and defective contact points: the net result being retreatment and financial cost to the office and dissatisfaction for both the operator and patient alike.

This 60-minute presentation offers simple logical evidence based protocols for the regular general dentist to provide functional aesthetic class 2 restorations with firm proximal contacts on a predictable basis.
