Introducing the 3M™ Filtek™ Matrix.

SOLD OUT- There is a 2nd day that has been added, Thursday, May 25.

Hands-on Course 30 Workstations

This 3-hour hands-on presentation will introduce you to the3M™ Filtek™ Matrix which is new-to-the-world solution for placing direct composite veneers, closing diastemas, and rejuvenating peg laterals and undersized teeth.

Learning Objectives:

• Introduce a new digital solution for esthetic 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.


With a streamlined digital workflow, you can confidently provide your patients a valuable service without the stress of free-hand shaping.

Esthetic Results

From undersized teeth to closing gaps and post orthodontic to veneers, the Filtek Matrix delivers esthetic results aligned to the digital design using clinically proven 3M™ Filtek™ Dental Composites.


The Filtek Matrix allows for faster, simplified and more efficient procedures giving clinicians more confidence—and less chair time.


The Filtek Matrix procedure is additive and maintains healthy tooth structure. This leads to a more conservative design than other more invasive ceramic procedures which require tooth preparation and reduction to otherwise healthy enamel.
