The popularity and demand for direct composite resin restorations in the anterior segment are surging, and the esthetically minded dentist has a large array of materials at his or her disposal from which to choose in order to create natural-looking restorations. This article will focus on the art and technique of creating natural-looking calcification effects within a direct anterior composite.
I was fortunate to be present for the release of Estelite Omega Composite Restorative System (Tokuyama Dental America) at the California Dental Association meeting in 2011 (Anaheim, CA). I was there to help the creator of this incredible product, Dr. Newton Fahl Jr., while he gave his first hands-on workshop with the new material. I was also given a complete Estelite Omega kit and have used the product as my “go to” anterior composite ever since.
