Predictable Marginal Ridge
A UK Townie looks for advice on composite restorations

Hello,
I was wondering if someone had any advice on this. I find that when I use a sectional matrix
for my composite restorations, I more often than not over build my marginal ridge.
I find it difficult to gauge this. I then have to adjust it and I am conscious of then damaging
the nice contact I've just created.
Any advice on how to get a repeatable/predictable marginal ridge would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards, Niall ■

One quick tip I've found is to spend an extra minute placing my band and making sure it's the
correct size. With the nice contour of the sectional matrix bands if you place them so the top is
directly even with the top of your preparation you should get a nice rounded ridge.
I run into trouble when I'm lazy and the band is too large so that the top is above the top of
my preparation... that gives wonky contours and more finishing. ■

Instead of constantly looking at the filling area with your mirror from a bird's eye view, step
back for a second and look from an angle down the side of the teeth.
You will find often times in this view you've added too much composite. ■
