Direct composite resin restorations provide satisfactory esthetic results and minimum wear of the dental structure. Technological evolution along with a better understanding of the behavior of dental tissues to light incidence has allowed the development of new composite resins with better mechanical and optical properties, making possible a more artistic approach for anterior restorations. The aim of this study was to find the most common shade used in Aesthetic management of Class III restorations.
Materials and methods:
A retrospective cross-sectional study was carried out which included patient’s details by assessing the report from the data of 86,000 patients between June 2019 and May 2021. The inclusion criteria were : Patient’s age, gender, shade and Teeth number. From this we obtained 3194 patients who underwent Anterior Class 3 restoration. Data was tabulated in Excel and imported to SPSS.The type of statistical analysis used in this study was Correlation and Association.
From the results obtained it was seen that age group of 20-40years patients received Anterior Class III restoration at a higher rate (47%) with Female predilection(62%). Permanent teeth was restored at a higher incidence (84.5%) and the most commonly used shade was A2(63.68%).
The combination of the increasing demand of patients for esthetics and the capacity to preserve the dental structure resulted in the development of different incremental techniques for restoring fractured anterior teeth in a natural way.
