Greater Curve Technique - Home Page

The Greater Curve technique allows for restoration of teeth in a neutral position and eliminates the need for wedging.

By using the Greater Curve Technique, you are able to:

  • Ensure tight contacts with width and depth
  • Easily restore teeth with wide interproximal embrasures
  • Fabricate anterior restorations with rounded emergence contours
  • Simplify your hardware (retainer and band is all that is needed)
  • Easily maintain moisture control

Most interproximal composite techniques force teeth apart with a wedge and separating spring combination. This can present problems: 

  • Inconsistent contacts
  • Contacts lacking depth
  • Simply not enough room for hardware 
  • Difficult to maintain moisture control
