Incisal edge fracture of the upper central incisor and dissatisfaction with the size of central incisors.
The incisor edges of the upper central incisors showed unsatisfactory restorations and an evident fracture line in the angle between the restoration and the tooth remnant.
A restorative treatment was planned using the BRB technique (Bertolho, Ricci, Barrotte matrix)1 with composites, to perform the restoration and re-anatomization of the upper incisors in a single session. The advantage of this technique is that it does not require the use of study models and diagnostic waxing to design a matrix to make the palatal wall. The first step was to choose the shade by means of crosspolarized light through photography with polarized filters². This method allows suppressing reflections of ambient light and the flash of the photography equipment, removing brightness to see only the hue and chroma. After that, the BRB matrix was made, followed by the removal of the restorations and adaptation of the remnant. The restoration was then performed with Opallis composite in order to improve shade and size of the upper central incisors.
