Although acid etching has become an indispensable part of composite restorations, inadvertent etching of tooth surfaces adjacent to the restorative area is a common clinical mishap, that can be avoided. Conventional methods of protection of teeth from overzealous acid etching such as Mylar strips and matrix bands often prove ineffective. This article explains the use of Plumber’s tape to prevent inadvertent acid etching. Teflon provides an inexpensive yet effective alternative to the conventional methods of preventing etching of non-restorative surfaces.
