The young patient came to our attention for the replacement of an old composite restoration and with an interproximal lesion on molar 36. The following images show the step-by-step direct composite restoration procedure using myQuickmat Forte kit (Polydentia) in combination with myTines Small and myTines Medium (Polydentia). myTines Small are very useful tools when restoring cavities in young permanent teeth featuring short crowns.
1: Pre-operative situation showing both the old composite restoration that needs replacement and the carious lesion on molar #36.
2: Teeth under isolation.
3: The cavity after cleaning and disinfection.
4: myRing Forte in combination with two different extremities was placed on the tooth before proceeding with the reconstruction of the mesial proximal wall. Due to the slight lingual inclination of the molar 36, myTines small (purple) was used lingually and myTines medium (blue) buccally.
5: After etching and bonding, we proceed with the placement of the composite resin and the photopolymerisation.
6: #36 after the restoration of both interproximal walls before reconstruction of the occlusal surface.
7: The clinical situation after the restoration of the occlusal surface before finishing and polishing.
8: Post-operative view of the restoration.
9: The direct restoration after the one-year recall. Notice the tight contact point and the ultimate perimeter of our restoration on molar #36.
10: Final restoration without rubber dam. Check the tight contact point between premolars.
Customisation of our sectional matrix systems with different extremities on the same separator ring gives improved stability of the ring even in posterior teeth with inclinations of their long axis. This characteristic offered by myQuickmat Forte sectional matrix system (Polydentia) results in natural-looking and functionally correct restorations.

This case involves a teenager 16 years old with an interproximal lesion in his left lower molar (#36)....
