4: Canine 13 was restored before proceeding with the procedure explained in this case study.
Unica anterior matrix was placed for the restoration of incisor 12 . The contoured shape of the matrix embraces the teeth and help the practitioner to better see where the proximal edge will be placed. In this case, the stability of the matrices itself does not require wedges or myCustom Resin to stay in position.

Unica anterior powered by Style Italiano is a powerful tool for direct composite anterior restorations.
Thanks to its contoured shape, Unica adapts correctly to the different morphologies of anterior teeth and makes it possible to restore interproximal margins, even in case of extended Class III cavities where the tooth profile is missing.
