Making Anterior Composite Cases Faster, Easier And Less Stressful Using The New 3M Filtek Matrix

8:00 AM, February 10, 2023

Are there esthetic cases in your practice that you haven’t treated either because the patient can’t afford veneers or because it would be difficult or time consuming to treat using direct composites?  This 4Hr hands-on presentation by Dr. Adam Hodges, will introduce you to the 3MTM FiltekTM Matrix which is new-to-the-word solution for placing direct composite veneers, closing diastemas, and rejuvenating peg laterals and undersized teeth.

Anterior composite treatments involving diastema closure and/or veneers are cases clinicians find difficult. The value of conservative treatment is obvious but the skill set and time required often lead some of us to avoid this treatment option. The promise of digital technology is simplification of workflow and predictability of outcomes. This lecture will introduce participants to a new custom printed matrix which can be leveraged to make these cases more predictable with less chair time.


  • Introduce a new digital solution for aesthetic direct composite dentistry.
  • Discuss the advantages of using a custom matrix for placement of anterior composites.
  • Describe the digital and clinical workflows, and how to select cases, when using this new 3D-printed custom matrix.
  • Understand how to achieve aesthetic outcomes through a series of clinical case reviews.
