case report

The patient came to our attention for a regular check. A first analysis revealed a class III carious lesion on incisor 21. We decided to eliminate the carious lesion and proceed with a direct composite restoration of the cavity.
The following case study shows the step-by-step restoration procedure using the Polydentia Unica anterior matrix.

4: Unica anterior matrix placed on incisor 21 and fixed in place using a wooden wedge. The contoured shape of the matrix embraces the teeth and help the practitioner to better see where the proximal edge will be placed.

Unica anterior powered by Style Italiano è uno strumento molto performante per i restauri diretti in composito sui denti anteriori.
Grazie alla sua forma anatomica, Unica si adatta correttamente alle differenti morfologie e permette di restaurare in maniera semplice e veloce i contorni inter-prossimali, anche in presenza di cavità di classe III molto estese che compromettono in modo consistente il profilo del dente.
