  • Figure 4: Pearl (white dentin) powder was used as an effect to highlight each lobe with a segment of Orange Fluorescent Powder on the middle lobe.

  • Figure 1: Before: The patient presented with discolored composite buildups, worn incisors and boxy looking teeth.

  • Figure 5: Jones layered the restorations to full contour using Opal 2 between the lobes and Opal 3 in the mesial incisal and distal incisal grooves.

  • Figure 3: Jones used a double-sided diamond disk to cut in the internal lobe formations, and a pointed flame diamond to soften these cuts.

  • Figure 2: The pressed, fitted restorations; Brad Jones pressed the case using an Authentic BO+ ingot that is similar to a Chromascop O4O or a Vita B1 shade in brightness and color.

  • Figure 6: After: The final restorations were bonded in place, and the patient said her expectations were exceeded.
