In my practice, I am very focused on creating lifelike restorations that exceed my patients’ expectations. I often find that the standards I hold myself to are higher than those of many of my patients; they are happy with the outcome, but I can always find room for improvement. This mindset is expensive; I have purchased a lot of different materials, instruments and equipment to help me provide the best care. One aspect of my practice where I wanted to improve my game, while streamlining my inventory, was direct composite restorations. I had the opportunity to give OMNICHROMA (Tokuyama Dental America) a try and I have found two particular scenarios where it has exceeded my expectations.
