Abstract

Advancements in material research and adhesive technology have enabled the development of freehand bonding techniques that allow the preservation of remaining tooth structure and conservation of tooth structure during preparation - all while reinforcing the remaining tooth structure and improving the longevity and aesthetics of the restoration. In this article, the clinical concepts discussed were utilized with a recently developed composite resin material to restore the maxillary anterior dentition. Although the long-term benefits of this material remain to be determined, the utilization of this nanohybrid composite in this clinical presentation demonstrated an optimal functional and natural aesthetic result in the anterior region. Part 2 of this article will address the principles, techniques, and other considerations for achieving clinical success with direct posterior composite resin restorations.
