Today we’ll be delving into deep margin elevation and isolation. This episode is a two part series so be sure to come back next week. Deep margin elevation (DME) is a restorative technique which can at times be a viable alternative to crown lengthening. This approach was first presented by Didier Dietschi in 1998 and is sometimes also known as coronal margin relocation. It involves raising deep subgingival proximal margins in a coronal direction with composite. However, deep margin elevation must be used with careful isolation and a matrix band. Dr. Gerdolle will give you a foundational definition on deep margin elevation aka DME, talk about how to achieve good isolation and what type of magnification you should be using.
