The platinum foil technique is very ancient. I have reviewed and modified it; the process of surface tension reduction and the stabilization firing allow great precision. I have contributed to relaunch the use of this technique for minimally invasive restorations, combining it with the “Illumina” technique, thus achieving clinical and technical results which are extraordinarily effective from the esthetic as well as the functional point of view.
