Directa FenderMate® - Sectional matrix for Class II composite restorations
FenderMate is a one-piece sectional matrix and wedge that is pre-curved, providing for predictable, fast, and safe composite restorations. There is cervical sealing and tight contact. FenderMate is created to be able to be inserted either lingually or buccally. The matrix reaches from the base of the wedge to barely above the occlusal surface, with the side of the wedge facing the adjacent tooth having an angled wing.
During insertion, the wing pushes the matrix firmly against the preparation. This creats a tight seal at the cervical margin. The contact point is formed from the matrix having a pre-contoured indentation. This mimics natural contours. When the rubber dam is not in use, it is recommended to secure FenderMate with waxed floss.
FenderMate is available in assortment, refill-, or value pack. It also comes in two wedge sizes; Regular and Narrow. Regular sizes have darker colors, while Narrow is lighter colors. FenderMate wedges are colored either Green or Blue to define Right or Left side respectively.
