Matrix Buttons from Advantage Dental are used most frequently for custom temporary crown impressions. The buttons are softened in hot water then are ready to be adapted to tooth structure. Next they are cooled and hardened with air to create a hard yet flexible mold.
- Can also be used for:
- Insulating sensitive teeth while operating in another area
- Bite registrations
- Implant shims to guide placement
- Border molding trays for denture impressions
