The implementation of guided direct restorations technique in the clinical practice can provide significant benefits to patients and clinicians alike.
Facially driven full smile designs can be achieved with this minimally invasive procedure providing patients with a high quality functional and esthetic solution.
For clinicians, this technique is easy to adopt, execute and affordable.
The technique has evolved throughout the years from the clinical indications, design of the trays depending on the composite used and materials used to fabricate these appliances.
With the growth of 3D printing and specifically in the development of new dental materials, for the first time, clinicians can 3D print high quality direct composite restoration indexes with IBT Flex Resin, a new biocompatible material optimized for this technique.
In this webinar, Dr. Luken de Arbeloa, Education Content & KOL Manager at Digital Smile Design and Dr. Elisa Praderi, Senior Clinical Protocols & KOL Manager at Formlabs Dental will walk you through the evolution of this technique and why is it important, about the designs of the trays if used for injectable or pressed technique, materials that can be used for production of the indexes, advantages of 3D printed direct composite restoration guides printed with IBT Flex Resin compared to traditional clear PVS and more.
