Abstract

Advances in adhesive dentistry have led to increased use of indirect restorations. In some situations, indirect composite techniques are more advantageous than direct composite filling techniques, such as establishing proper occlusal and interproximal anatomy, reducing polymerization shrinkage stress, and promoting the degree of conversion. This article presents a case about restoring the lower right first molar with extensive loss of tooth structure by the composite onlay to achieve a proper anatomic form and rehabilitate chewing function. This one-year clinical case encourages clinicians to manage large decay of posterior tooth conservatively. The given functional and esthetic outcomes demonstrate the promising applicability of the indirect composite technique. View Full-Text
