Provides hands-free ISOLATION of adjacent teeth from etch & bonding agents critical for building composite directly against the adjacent tooth. For veneers, tape deforms readily to permit seating without displacment. Atraumatic to gingiva.
Also excellent MATRIX for class 3 & 5 composites that don't include an interproximal contact area. May be stretched into sulcus for smoother gingival margins, and improves surface visibility.
Tapetrix is related to hardware store plumbers' tape, but is specially formulated for dental applications. Set of 4 spools. Each spool is 10 mm x 650 cm PTFE tape.
