Practice tip: Here is how to contour mamelons in anterior teeth
Are you unsure as to how to contour mamelons in anterior teeth to make them look esthetic? Here is a tip for you.
Contour mamelons in an ideal width
The pointed tip attachment of the OptraSculpt Next Generation instrument is particularly useful for this indication. With its rounded sides and fine tapered tip, this tool enables you to place mamelons in the composite material in an ideal width with ease.
Accentuate mamelons additionally
You may additionally accentuate the resulting mamelons by overcoating them with a highly translucent Effect composite material (e.g. IPS Empress Direct Effect Trans Opal; translucency: approx. 20 - 30%). This will add special emphasis to the mamelons.
