Nicely done, Brian. The idea of the double matrix was originally created by our talented lab technician, Mark Hamilton, who recently retired after 38 years working with our team but was actually trained by R Sheldon Stein. I also published on the technique of using 2 holes... one for the Incisal/body and another to measure the gingival thickness. You might want to try the new Goldstein Colorvue Probe by Hu-Friedy which measures in 1/2 mm up to 3mm and so easy to read.

Ron Thanks for the info.
As always you are a wealth of information and advise.
Take care Brian

I think this is complicated. I placed teflon tape on adjacent teeth and then used the matrix, it is easy to remove extras without additional work. Gregory

Greg thanks for your comments.
I also use my fair share of teflon tape. Which is a good technique as well.
This was just to demonstrate an alternative procedure for doing composite addition dentistry and to minimize flash when doing large additions.
Take care Brian
