A Color-Technology Revolution in Composite Dentistry

Lecture Description: 

The physical properties of restorative materials have improved dramatically, but composite coloring technology has remained mostly unchanged, relying on dyes, pigments, and light diffusion to produce esthetic restorations. Unique approaches in composite filler production have led to a recent breakthrough that rethinks the coloration process, producing a novel structural color technology that allows for materials with wider shade matching abilities.

  • Explain the processes by which coloration and shade matching have historically been achieved in composites
  • Describe how proprietary filler production methods allowed for a breakthrough in coloration technology possible
  • Understand how this new coloration technology allows for a unique restorative material with unprecedented shade-matching ability
