Class 3: Class 1 - single surface on posterior teeth. Class 2 - involves an inter proximal surface on a posterior tooth. Class 3 - involves an inter proximal surface of an anterior tooth (usually in the middle or incisal third). Class 4 - involves the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. Class 5 - cavity along the gum line.
