Dental matrix systems – just blue it!

Dental matrix systems – just blue it!

What does the colour blue have to do with dental matrix systems? J&S Davis explains the benefits of the LumiContrast sectional matrix and its matte blue surface.

There’s a lot to be said about the colour blue. Of course, we’re big fans over here at J&S Davis (check the branding!), but have you ever considered the meaning behind this much loved primary colour?

The colour blue is often associated by many with tranquillity, healing and security, as well as reliability and stability. Interestingly, despite being the colour of the sea and sky, blue is the rarest colour found in nature. You may agree therefore that this would provide an excellent contrast against the white colour of a tooth…

It’s an odd comparison, perhaps, but a genius choice of colour for sectional matrices, don’t you think?

Queue: LumiContrast.


LumiContrast is a superior quality, innovative sectional matrix, brought to you by Polydentia. The matte blue surface of the sectional matrix results in reduced reflection and zero blinding effect. The contrast between the dark colour and the white tooth also allows the area for intervention to be more easily identified and worked on with greater precision.

The innovative colouring of the matrix does not detach and the particles do not disperse inside the cavity or the filling material. DCPs are also finding the LumiContrast indispensable when using modern technologies that involve the use of intense light sources such as loupes and dental microscopes.

Interested? We thought so!

LumiContrast can be bought in packs of 70 (various sizes available). However, it is also useful to note that this is available in the highly sought after myQuickmat Forte Starter Kit – click here for more information.
