Margins by Medit and exocad by a CAD-Ray user

It i sometimes confusing to some doctors when looking at bitewings shot at specific angles that make the margin look like it has filled in with resin, or the the margin is “raised” with composite material.  When looking at a sloping margin, where you have a deep chamfer or finish line, instead of a shoulder margin, when you take a bitewing immediate post-op X-ray, the flow of the margin line is superimposed on itself due to the two dimensional image.

Clinically, if you look at the margin design, you will appreciate the anatomy of the prep and how that can lead to this effect.
