Adhesion, Layering, and Finishing of Resin Composite Restorations for Class II Cavity Preparations
Ferraris, Federico
The increasing knowledge of microhybrid composite materials has offered clinicians multiple restorative options. The use of products that guarantee a high adhesive capacity, isolation via rubber dam, and anatomic shaping with thin layering and adequate cyclic polymerization are the bases for a predictable result. Further, a finishing and polishing system that takes into account the superficial roughness and esthetic characteristics of the restorative material is the final element of a restoration that has been fabricated following correct treatment guidelines. This article aims to provide a protocol for the management of direct resin composite restorations and to discuss the correct operative sequence, particularly for the restoration of Class II cavity preparations.
