It is likely that every day, in your dental practice, you reach for your composite resin material to restore a tooth. It is the material we, as dentists, rely on the most.

- Review material characteristics of composite resin and most likely causes for premature failure
- Discuss bulk ‘ll composites and clinical caveats for case selection
- Demonstrate novel material systems designed for optimization efficiency
