Introduction to Modern Dentistry Combined with Thermal-Viscous Smart Composites: Exploring the Dark Side of Black Triangles and Negative Space


Esthetic dentistry involves harmonious integration of smile design, matrix and material selection. This is accomplished by a comprehensive knowledge of facial esthetics, tooth morphology and available restorative techniques. Recent research explains the strong desire from patients to correct unfamiliar negative space and black triangles. 1/3rd of adults suffer from Black Triangles and a significant number of adult post-orthodontic cases result in Black Triangles. Cervical lesions and gingival recession which have been found to be present in 85% of the population, represent a major problem for dentists to restore with composite resin materials due to the varying adhesive properties of the tooth structure and the bio mechanical aspects of the cervical area. Dr. Milnar will explore new treatment modalities for mitigating negative space; Injection molding of heated composite into Bio clear specialized matrices to eliminate black triangles. This Hands-On workshop will give attendees a step-by-step approach to restore black triangles, Class II, III, V, Diastema, Peg lateral and Root Overlay restorations with the Bio clear “Modern Method of Rejuvenation”. Attendees will gain experience with a new bur system to create engineering preparations and exceptional flowable and paste composites.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn how to choose the proper Bioclear anatomical matrices to enhance the contact areas for injection molding of thermally liquefied composite
  • Discover the keys to ideal, overhang free margins and a mirror finish
  • Understand healthy restorative systems and how they are connected to general health with exceptional physical properties
  • Learn how to prepare teeth using a new bur system that creates engineering principles
  • Understand injection molding techniques, combined with warm composite, result in less stress and more profitable, durable restorations
  • Learn a step-by-step approach when restoring dark triangles and other restorations.
  • Understanding the 5 essentials of injection molding to mitigate unfamiliar negative space
