Composite resin technology has evolved, providing clinicians with the ability to deliver more natural-looking restorations for their dental patients. The evolution of layering techniques and internal staining procedures has further improved composite resins' potential for optimal results. This article discusses difficulties associated with traditional composite layering and staining, and it presents in vitro research that supports a novel layering approach. Specifically, the cut-back, etch, bond, and layer technique (CEBL) is introduced as an alternative to freehand layering. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: This article presents current concepts for composite resin layering and bonding technology. Upon reading this article, the reader should: Understand the clinical protocol for resin layering and bonding. Recognize the scientific advantages associated with composite layering with the CEBL technique.
