A 35-year-old female patient expressed a desire to optimise existing composite restorations on her maxillary central incisors, which had been placed 15 years previously to close her diastema. Then, a silicone key had been used for guidance. No tooth preparation was carried out, as the composite was bonded to the tooth structure.

The main challenge in this case was to create a naturallooking, anatomically correct tooth shape. To simplify the procedure, we used an anterior matrix system and 3M™ Filtek™ Universal Restorative, because it was designed for the single-shade technique, and has great modeling properties and a chameleon effect for good optical integration.

The patient presented unaesthetic black triangles in the upper anterior and lower anterior sextants. He had recently completed orthodontic treatment to address the black triangles and was disappointed that the orthodontic treatment actually worsened the aesthetic dilemma. He was looking for a conservative solution to close his black triangles.

The challenge in this case was maintaining the beautiful contours of the anterior tooth’s natural structure, and matching the dentition. 3M™ Filtek™ Universal Restorative along with a Bioclear® Matrix were used to restore this complex Class III so that it would be virtually unnoticeable.
