Direct Composite Restorations using Composi-Tight Gold - Robert A. Lowe, DDS, FAGD, FICD, FADI, FACD
The challenge with Class II restorations has always been to recreate contact to the adjacent tooth and at the same time, restore proper interproximal anatomic form given the limitations of conventional matrix systems. The thickness of the matrix band and the ability to compress the periodontal ligaments of the tooth being restored and the one adjacent to it can sometimes make the restoration of proximal tooth contact laborious at best.

When this procedure can be reliably completed in an efficient manner, it becomes an outstanding revenue generator and a great service to the patient.
