After anesthesia was administered, the clearance from opposing dentition was assessed. The preparation was reduced to accommodate the necessary thickness of the material.
Once adequate clearance was achieved an Optragate was placed and an isolite was used to isolate the area. The preparation was scanned and then the lower arch was captured. The buccal bite was then taken to along the arches together
