1. Use a black background to evaluate flaws prior to starting treatment

Dr Osama Shaalan recommends use of a black background to help highlight all flaws. In this case, he uses it to illustrate all the flaws of the restorations; namely that the gingival embrasures were not properly considered when restoring the teeth, so the patient cannot properly floss and now has gingivitis.

Following this evaluation, it is decided to replace the composite veneers on the upper 8 teeth.

2. Use a quality Enamel shade to assist with building the palatal shell

Dr Osama Shaalan makes use of the White Dental Beauty Professional CompoSite system for this case, making use of the Enamel shade to build a 0.5mm palatal shell, with the aid of a silicone index.

White Dental Beauty Enamel has a non-sticky, smooth consistency and has been developed with optimum viscosity and excellent handling.

3. Shade selection is key

Dr Osama Shaalan highlights the importance of shade selection, using CompoSite shade Si 1 from CompoSite professional system to layer and then shape the mamelons.

Shade selection is assisted with this system because it includes five high value shades of white, providing the optimum graduation between the varying lighter shades – an absolute must for restorative work on bleached or naturally white teeth.

4. Use a natural enamel shade for the final layer

For the final layer Dr Shaalan returns to the Enamel shade from the White Dental Beauty professional CompoSite system, noting how it helps to give the illusion of natural appearance and helps with incisal characterization.

The Enamel shade can really help with brightness, taking up the colour of the body material for a natural appearance.
