This case study depicts a slightly different technique used by Dr Terry Wong, whereby the uncured material on the buccal side is shaped with OptraSculpt Pads (Ivoclar Vivadent) prior to curing.

Dr Terry Wong B.SC (HONS) MELB, B.D.SC (MELB) is a leading dentist from Melbourne, Australia. Trained in resin bonding at the Fahl Institute of Dental Art & Science (Brazil), he has lectured extensively throughout Asia and New Zealand on composite resin and has been using and lecturing on the One Visit Crown for a number of years now.

Every clinician has their preference over which method they like to use to complete a One Visit Crown.

In this post we will show you how to do less unfulfilling procedures and more profitable and rewarding dentistry using the One Visit Crown
It is all too common for patients to reject crowns in favour of unprofitable large composite fillings, or to defer the treatment altogether.
