For many years dentistry has been searching for that magic wand to create instant esthetic results. The terms “universal” or “chameleon” have been used to sell the dentist on the concept that less is better and one size fits all.

As a pioneer of composite bonding, Dr. Bud Mopper has never seen it that way. That is why Cosmedent’s Renamel Restorative System of materials, shades, and handling properties is ideal for what the cosmetic dentist of today wants. Through a systematic approach, Dr. Mopper’s concept makes bonding simple for any dentist.

When you are busier in your practice, you are happier! Learn all of the dentistry that you are not currently doing in your practice and how doing more of it can benefit you financially and professionally by adding more value to your practice.
