18 year old female patient.
All 6 teeth from canine to canine were restored conservatively with composite fillings using Estelite Sigma Quick shade A1 and OA1.
Not perfect. The restorations will need some adjustments at her next appointment.
A little bleeding. The photos were taken right after the adjustments with retraction cords removed.

Always after a clean and neat cavity preparation.
An intraoral camera should be used to make sure that no caries or possible caries was left on the tooth.
The upper right first molar was restored with Estelite Sigma Quick shade A3.

The final restoration should always be placed only after a clean and neat cavity preparation.
The tooth was restored with a composite filling using Estelite Sigma Quick paste shade A2 and Filtek Supreme Ultra flowable shade A2 and A4.

Wide bevel and retraction cords.
The teeth were restored with Estelite Sigma Quick composite shade A3.5.
Don’t forget that the gingival 1/3 is usually a little darker in shade. Try to avoid placing composite fillings that are too light in shade on class 5 cases if you want restorations that look natural. (Sponsored by Tokuyama)

Don’t waste your time with spoon scavators to remove the soft caries. In my opinion, it is more effective and faster to use carbide round burs (sizes 2,4,6,8) with a slow speed handpiece to remove all the soft caries completely.
To be honest, I see dentists leaving soft orange/brown caries on the tooth all the time in Instagram and Facebook.
Sometimes I think many of us tend to forget the basic things that we learned at the dental school.

@Regrann from @diamondbardentalgroup - Internal fracture lines (facial, distal and lingual) caused by the high expansion and contraction properties of the amalgam on the tooth. And with deep recurrent caries.
The patient had a sensitivity on chewing in the past. No spontaneous pain.
Again, I am not a fan of amalgam restorations.
In my opinion, if composite fillings are done right, they are much better materials to be in the mouth than amalgam fillings.
The tooth was restored with Estelite Sigma Quick shade A2 and Filtek Supreme Ultra flowable shade A2 and A4.

Two years ago, I recommended to have the amalgam replaced. Three months later, the patient went to an office near her home and had a composite filling placed on the tooth.
Today, after 2 years later, the patient came back to have the restoration redone.
The cavity was very deep. TheraCal liner was placed and the tooth was restored with Estelite Sigma Quick composite shade A3 and Filtek Supreme Ultra flowable shade A3 and A4.
Always after a neat and clean cavity prep!

Severe abfraction. Recurrent caries under the old composite fillings.
Composite was placed after the placement of retraction cords impregnated with epinephrine. Epinephrine will help to control the possible bleeding from the gum.

A final restoration should be placed always after a clean and neat cavity preparation!Common sense? However, it seems that too many dentists don’t think that it is very important.
The tooth was restored with Estelite Sigma Quick shade A3 paste and Filtek Supreme Ultra flowable shade A4 and A3.
