Dental Tribune United Kingdom Edition

July 11-17, 201118 Cosmetic Tribune United Kingdom Edition functions as a stress-breaker and therefore provides a better, more durable bond between tooth structure, adhesive and composite. Venus Diamond Flow has thixotropic proper- ties. During application with a tip the viscosity is reduced and the material can be applied to the required areas. Immediate- ly after application the material is positionally stable and does not flow. Venus Diamond Flow is polymerised for 20s. In the following steps the original tooth shape was recon- structed using Venus Diamond. First the dentine core was built up using shade OM, anatomi- cally sculpted and polymerised (Fig. 8). Already at this stage care is taken to ensure a func- tional build-up of the cusps and fissures. The functional-ana- tomical build-up of the occlusal surface and the marginal ridges is completed using Venus Dia- mond A2 (Fig. 9). Superfinish diamonds are used for the rough preparation. Figure 10 shows the Venus Dia- mond nanohybrid restoration before polishing. A high lustre was quickly and efficiently pro- duced using the Venus Supra polishing system, though con- ventional polishers can also be used for high-lustre polishing. Figure 11 shows the aesthetic shade blend between the tooth structure and Venus Diamond, which is highlighted when compared with the adjacent restorations. Venus Diamond: Summary The nanohybrid composite Ve- nus Diamond creates the com- bination of optimal mechanical properties, durable aesthetics and easy handling. It is ideal for use with both complex restora- tions as well as the one-layer technique. The shade system is clearly structured and identical to the corresponding Flowable Venus Diamond Flow. Apart from the physical factors, nan- otechnology promotes polish- ability and gloss durability. Venus Diamond is suitable for universal use and can be combined with all methyl methacrylate-based adhesive systems.

The nanostructure of Venus Diamond allows it to be quickly and easily polished to a high lustre.

All biomechanical factors for a functional oc-clusal surface have been implemented. ‘Immediately after application the ma- terial is positionally stable and does not flow’ www.thedbg.co.uk For more information and a quote contact the DBG on 0845 00 66 112 Please Note: Errors and omissions excluded.

Are you waiting to find out when the Care Quality Commission* inspect your practice? Your compliance with Clinical Governance and Patient Outcomes will be questioned with the introduction of the Care Quality Commission*, HTM 01-05 and the increase in PCT practice inspections. Would you like to know how you would fare when your practice is inspected and have the opportunity to take corrective action? The DBG Clinical Governance Assessment is the all important experience of a practice audit visit rather than the reliance on a self audit which can lead to a false sense of compliance. The assessment is designed to give you reassurance that you have fulfilled your obligations and highlight any potential problems. We will provide help and advice on the latest guidance throughout the visit. • Your premises including access, facilities, security, fire precautions, third parties and business continuity plans. • Information governance including Freedom of Information Act, manual and computerised records, Data Protection and security. • Training, documentation and certificates. • Radiography including IRR99 and IR(ME)R2000 compliance. • Cross infection and decontamination including HTM 01-05 compliance and surgery audits. • Medical emergencies including resuscitation, drugs, equipments and protocols. • Training, documentation and certificates. • Waste disposal and documentation and storage. • Practice policies and written procedures. • Clinical audit and patient outcomes including quality measures. The assessment will take approximately four hours of your Practice Manager’s time depending on the number of surgeries and we will require access to all areas of your practice. A report will be despatched to you confirming the results of our assessment. If you have an inspection imminent then we suggest that you arrange your DBG assessment at least one month before the inspection to allow you time to carry out any recommendations if required. Following the assessment you may wish to have access to the DBG Clinical Governance Package with on-line compliance manuals. The areas the DBG assesses are: Clinical Governance including Patient Quality Measures - Is your practice compliant? Have you addressed all 28 CQC outcomes? ? *England only. 20YEARSYEARS 20 9361 DBG ClinicalGov The probe 338x244.qxd:Layout 1 1/7/10 13:39 Page 1
