Anterior composite artistry—simplified vs. layered

July 18, 2023
In this episode of Dentistry Unmasked, we talk with Dr. Peter Auster, who shares his perspective, opinion, and expert tips on how to achieve AACD-level direct restorations.

We all see the complicated and gorgeous restorations on social media, so we wanted to discuss whether more layers are better when placing anterior direct restorations. We've invited Dr. Peter Auster to share his perspective, opinion, and a few pearls on how to achieve AACD-level direct restorations on anterior teeth. So many dentists label themselves as “cosmetic dentists,” and we’ll consider who should and who shouldn’t classify themselves that way.
