VITTONE, Valeria; SERVIAN, Lourdes  and  URBINA, Daniela. Multiple diastema closure using Omnichroma universal resin. A case report. Rev. cient. cienc. salud [online]. 2022, vol.4, n.2, pp.88-94. ISSN 2664-2891.

The presence of diastemas is one of the most common aesthetic complaints among patients. The use of composite resins is a good aesthetic and functional option to perform restorations and implement restorative techniques in a minimally invasive way. The resin layering technique was introduced in 1980, giving very good results in color selection, but being the most complex procedure and requiring great technical skills in addition to an increase in clinical time. Composite materials and restorative techniques that aid in the simplified use of clinical protocols are highly sought after by dentists to reduce chair time and minimize post-operative sensitivity. It is for these reasons, in addition to simplifying shade taking, that Tokuyama Dental developed Omnichroma resin which claims to have the ability to copy the color of the remaining tooth substrate shortly after light curing known as the “Chameleon Effect” using a single shade. The objective of this article is to describe in detail, through a clinical case report, the closure of diastemas with Tokuyama Dental's Omnichroma universal resin.

Keywords : composite resins; diastema; dental aesthetics.
