Dr. Deliperi graduated from the University of Cagliari in 1998 and completed the Esthetic Dentistry fellowship at Tufts University in 2000. He was recognized at graduation for contributions to research by receiving the AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) Student Research Award. He has served as a visiting faculty at Tufts University since 2001; at the moment, he is an “Adjunct Assistant Professor”. Dr. Deliperi has been a member of the IADR (International Association of Dental Research) since 2001; he has presented research works at the IADR/AADR meetings and was repeatedly selected as an oral session co-chair.
He has authored several scientific publications on stress-reducing and aesthetic dentistry in peer-reviewed journals since 2002. He has served on the editorial boards of the Operative Dentistry Journal, the Journal of Esthetic & Restorative Dentistry, and the PPAD. Dr. Deliperi is a national and international lecturer; he has been providing continuing education and hands-on courses on restorative and biomimetic dentistry both in Europe and the USA for the last 15 years. He is a Scientific Advisor for the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry; he maintains a private practice and operates a teaching center in Cagliari, Sardinia- Italy.
The stress generated from polymerization shrinkage and the lack of adequate protocols has discouraged many clinicians from selecting a direct technique for the restoration of class II cavities for many years. However, stress-reducing direct composite (SRDC) restorations have been proposed as a valid alternative to indirect resin-bonded composite restorations (Deliperi & Bardwell, 2002, 2006; Deliperi, 2008; Deliperi & Alleman, 2009; Deliperi, Bardwell, Alleman, 2012; Deliperi 2012).
The goal of SRDC biomimetic restorations is to adopt protocols able to maximize the bond and minimize the stress in an attempt to mimic the functional and optical characteristics of the intact natural tooth. Both the maturation of the bond, the strategic layering and curing protocols are the milestone for stress reduction on the residual cavity wall.
After two decades of clinical success with SRDC, clinicians can confidentially preserve the remaining sound tooth structure in both medium, and large size restorations and cusp-replacing restorations to either resist the mode of failure or mimic the performance characteristics of the intact natural tooth!
Six basic steps will be followed to complete stress-reduced direct composite (SRDC) restorations: 1. Analysis of the occlusion and opposing dentition; 2. Cavity preparation and caries removal endpoints; 3. Analysis of residual tooth structure; 4. Preparation of the dental substrate to achieve a reliable bond to enamel and dentin; 5. Control of polymerization stresses by using appropriate layering and curing techniques; 6. Occlusal force equilibration (Deliperi 2012).
With a solid scientific background in mind and continuous training, clinicians may perform restorations able to recover the original strength of the natural teeth.
