Figure 2: The stamp technique for Class II cavity of tooth 45: (a) A bite-wing X-ray view shows distal caries on tooth 45, (b) isolation by rubber dam, (c) placement of matrix band distally, (d and e) the composite stamp, (f) cavity preparation, (g) readapt the matrix band in place using the stamp, (h) fix the band in place using a clamp and wooden wedges, (i) the composite was added and light cured 1 mm less than the occlusal surface, (j and k) the placement of Teflon tape and the occlusal stamp, (l) directly after removing the stamp, (m) after composite polymerization, (n) after the removal of the matrix band, note the sharp margin, (o) check occlusion after the removal of the rubber dam, (p) final finishing
