case report

A 50-years-old male patient without particular pathology came to our attention for periodical control; the X-Ray analysis evidenced a carious lesion on premolar 45 distal.
The following case shows the step-by-step direct composite restoration using the Polydentia myQuickmat Forte kit.

1: Pre-operative X-Ray view.

2: The quadrant under isolation.

3: The cavity after preparation, cleaning, caries removal and disinfection.

4: The premolar 45 equipped with LumiContrast sectional matrix and myWedge.

5.a: Incorrect matrix band positionning.

5.b: Correct matrix band positionning.

The correct positioning of the LumiContrast sectional Matrix is essential for a successful restoration of the proximal walls; the picture on the left shows the incorrect positioning of the matrix band; for the best restoration of the contact point, the matrix band must exceed the height of the proximal crown wall as shown on the right picture.

6: The cavity equipped with the myRing Forte, myWedge and LumiContrast sectional matrix. The myRing Forte embraces carefully the matrix band ensuring a faithful contact point restoration.

7: Etching of the cavity.

8: Bonding application.

9. Restoration of the distal interproximal wall.

10: #45 after restoration of the distal interproximal wall, removal of myRing Forte and detachment of the LumiContrast sectional matrix.

11: The occlusal cavity filled with composite before finishing and polishing.

12: Post-operative view of the restoration.

13: Side Post-operative view of the restoration.


The Polydentia myQuickmat Forte kit is a very effective system for posterior class II restorations. The myQuickmat Forte kit provides a strong separating ring for an effective teeth separation. The myRing Forte tines carefully embrace the matrix and, in combination with the myWedge ensure a perfect adaption of the matrix and a faithful contact point restoration.
