3M Filtek Matrix
The newest addition to the ARB family is the 3M Filtek matrix. 3M who you know as the people who brought you scotch tape and post-it notes, have a long and successful history in the dental industry bringing us exceptional quality products. Whereas the primary purpose of the Bioclear system is to close unsightly “Black Triangles” at the gumline. 3M Filtek Matrix uses a proprietary digitally created overlay matrix to produce an ideal appearance for the front eight teeth of your smile. Like the Bioclear system there is no tooth structure removed to carry out the procedure, resulting in a strong restoration that does not violate the tooth’s integrity.
After filling the teeth within the 3M Matrix, careful shaping and contouring are required to bring the new restorations to life. The bite is adjusted, and all contacts are checked for easy flossing. The final stage incorporates the “Rock Star Polishing” technique to give your new smile a beautiful luster. Like the Bioclear system any chips/fractures can easily be repaired in one appointment.
