Parameters for successful anterior composite restoration

Today's clinical parameters of success with composite restoration in the anterior aspect are well-established. A silicone index is often used in order to control the form of teeth and helps in the building of the lingual wall as well as with the localization of the incisal edge.

In order to simplify shade determination, manufacturers have developed specific shade guides that give a recipe for the colors to be used. But we still have to play with the material's light and transparency to adjust surface brightness.
Thus, and for a better understanding of the optical reactions of the composite build-up, a colorimetric study gives very interesting answers on the existing differences in between most recent composite systems.
