Direct Anterior Solutions


This is a full-day course for clinicians of all levels that aim to improve the quality of their direct anterior work. The course comprises of a full-morning lecture (break included), and a hands-on session in the afternoon.
The lecture covers advanced concepts of direct anterior restorative work, in an evidence-based manner. Among covered subjects are enamel and dentin adhesion, color and shade selection, isolation and matrixing methods, layering concepts and finishing and polishing techniques, all illustrated with several clinical cases.


Participants of this course can expect to gain a better understanding of:

  • The 3 dimensions of color, and their relation to different composite opacities and composite selection.
  • Composite layering principles, and when and how to apply them.
  • Matrixing and isolation techniques for direct work, including diastema and black triangle closure.
  • Adhesion mechanisms, and their relation to direct anterior work.
  • To get familiar with the direct-indirect composite technique.
