    Solving aesthetic issues in the anterior region with composite.

    A 50-year-old male patient presented for professional tooth cleaning. He had deep erosive lesions affecting the vestibular aspects of his maxillary central incisors, which he did not consider an issue. Nevertheless, the team informed him about the options to improve the aesthetics and protect the remaining tooth structure. The patient agreed to carry out a home-bleaching treatment followed by a direct restorative treatment with composite.

    • The biggest challenge was to mask the heavy discolouration while restoring the teeth to a natural shape and shade. 3M™ Filtek™ Universal Restorative was selected to accomplish this task. The Pink Opaquer was applied in a thin layer to cover and optically mask the discolourations.
