Abstract

Although this technique performed well in the case presented, it becomes more advantageous with larger restorations. This would be especially true for core build-up restorations of missing cusps, although such cusps must be restored prior to placement of separating rings. Clear plastic matrices are available and permit effective curing of resins, but the authors find the preset countours of these matrices not sufficiently adaptable to differing clinical situations and prefer metal matrices, even though these necessitate additional light curing after matrix removal.
