By Bob Margeas, DDS

From the one-shade to the more complex Class IV requiring layering of opacities, the simple fabrication of a lingual matrix can greatly simplify your technique while minimizing finishing time.

This accuracy translates into procedural efficiency and a more predictable restorative outcome.
