The composite is then shaped to a primary anatomic form with slight excess, and then light-cured. After that, the partially polymerized restoration is carefully removed (lifted) from the non-retentive, non-bonded tooth surface, heat-tempered extra-orally chairside, and finished and polished to final macro and micro anatomy.
