DISCOVER HOW DR. JOSÉ BAHILLO USES DENTAL COMPOSITE TO REHABILITATE WORN ANTERIOR TEETH IN THIS CLINICAL CASE
Dr. Bahillo presents a clinical case in which he uses Kiyomi’s Aster dental composite to rehabilitate deteriorated anterior teeth. This composite resin features an innovative silanization process, allowing for an ideal consistency to model and reconstruct the tooth’s anatomy naturally.
Instead of more invasive options like veneers or indirect crowns, Dr. Bahillo demonstrates how this conservative approach can be effective in restoring teeth with significant damage.
By choosing less aggressive treatments, excessive removal of dental tissue is avoided, preserving future alternatives if a replacement is needed, thereby extending the life of the teeth.
The first step is to make an accurate diagnosis of the teeth to be treated. This includes taking X-rays, photographs, and models to obtain an accurate color match and using a palatal silicone key to restore the lost shape.
TREATMENT WITH DENTAL COMPOSITE
In the next step, absolute isolation is achieved using a rubber dam, and any previously affected restorations due to cavities are removed.
Before the photographic study, color analysis is performed to determine the stratification of successive layers of composite (Kiyomi’s Aster Dental Composite). Following a biomimetic approach, enamel is used in the palatal structure, dentin in the tooth body, and enamel on the vestibular layer. In this case, an A2 enamel layer, A2 dentin, and an outer enamel layer are used.
FINISHING AND POLISHING
For finishing and polishing, the process begins with macrotexture using fine diamond or tungsten carbide burs to remove excess material and redefine the shape. Then, fine-grit softlex discs are used to correct interincisal angles, incisal edge length, and transition lines. Additionally, coarse-grit burs are used to create perikymata, which are developmental lines on the tooth’s surface that influence how light is reflected on the vestibular surface.
Finally, polishing pastes with progressively smaller particle sizes are used to achieve the final shine.
ASTER: NATURAL AND DURABLE DENTAL RESTORATIONS WITH COMPOSITE RESIN
Aster dental resin composite is suitable for both simple and complex cases in direct restorations of anterior and posterior teeth.
Thanks to its innovative silanization process, it offers an ideal consistency for modeling and reconstructing dental anatomy naturally. Its color guide is based on the renowned VITAPAN® Classical scale, ensuring results faithful to the patient’s original anatomy.
This material boasts excellent mechanical properties, making it easy to sculpt and ensuring the durability of restorations. Furthermore, its opalescence and fluorescence resemble natural teeth, achieving optimal aesthetic results.
