Incisal Fracture of composite venners placed 12 ½ years ago. Note: Prep and long bevel in composite.
A1 Opaque is placed using Cosmedent’s #1 brush
Additional opaque applied
Application of Renamel Microfill
Removing excess material and sculpting material well past the long bevel
Microfill completely cured after 60 seconds
Contour and shape material from composite to tooth using carbide of choice
After contouring with burs
Cosmedent’s coarse disc used to blend new composite into old composite with pressure to make margin completely disappear
Restoration after coarse and medium discs. Note: Complete absence of demarcation
Follow with Fine yellow and the pink SuperFine discs (notice the flex of FlexiDiscs)
Using FlexiStrip Fine/Superfine grits
Notice the invisible repair
This case shows a 12 ½ year composite repair. After preparation (etch and bond) Creative Color Opaque, in the same shade as the final composite, was applied to block out underlying tooth color. Then Renamel Microfill was overlaid over the old composite using a titanium coated, non-stick composite placement instrument. The microfill is then light-cured for 60 seconds and you are ready to move to contouring, finishing and polishing. Note that only a microfill composite was needed in this restoration because we were trying to simulate the enamel surface. The final result is both beautiful and invisible.
