Restoring an Overlapped Lower Anterior Composite Featured case of April 21, 2016May 2, 2016 Cosmetic Dennis Brown General Dentist www.greatercurve.com 875 views Introduction to the case A fun case. Overlapped anteriors can be difficult to restore. The Greater Curve system makes them more manageable. Before. Do you like challenges? Prep. Enamel taper approximates the mesial. Enamel taper provides retention and color blending. Greater Curve “Wide” set up in a contra-angle retainer. Note how the band opening is purposely made small so the number of screw turns will be minimal. Greater Curve “Wide” placed with a contra-angle retainer on the lingual side. Matrix cut back and distal contact opening made. Fast and easy to do. Excellent isolation. Filtek Supreme Ultra A2 dentin. Filtek Supreme Ultra A1 enamel veneered over the A2 dentin. Proximal surface refined with an ET 6 carbide against the blade of a CeriSaw. Proximal surface further refined with a #12 against the blade of a CeriSaw. Final restoration tooth #23. Incisal view of final restoration tooth #23. I narrowed the tooth to make it more cleansable. 2 weeks later. #26 was identical to #23, but not as severe. Final #23. I should have tapered the enamel more to the mesial and veneered over to the mesial. Color would have been better. Learn from my mistake.
