Restorative management includes direct restorations like composite build ups or indirect restorations like crowns, veneers, dentures or dental implants to replace missing teeth10,11.
However, insufficient polymerization of the composites is usual reason leading to failures in placement of direct or indirect restorations. Due to the incompletely cured restoratives, postoperative sensitivity is a common dental condition that even necessitates endodontic treatment.
The precision of the details is critical in terms of model accuracy, and the internal fit influences preconditions for the clinical performance of the indirect restorations (8-12).
There is no study that compares direct composite restorations with adhesive indirect restorations (ceramic partial restorations or ceramic crowns) and therefore more studies could be carried out in order to assess the real need of preparing sound tooth structure for a full crown restoration.
There are several options that can be used for managing tooth wear patients including Dahl concept, direct composite restorations, and indirect restorations. However, there are no definite material and technique for such patients supported by evidence [7, 8].
It discusses whether root canal-treated teeth are more fragile than vital teeth, including the causes of root canal-treated tooth loss, mechanical resistance of endodontically treated teeth, and tooth cracks and longitudinal fractures; when to decide on endodontic re-treatment and how to execute it; when to use fiber posts to restore root canal-treated teeth; how to prepare root canal-treated teeth for indirect restorations; how to bleach discolored teeth; how to obtain esthetic direct restoration in root canal-treated anterior teeth; whether porcelain veneers can be placed on root canal-treated teeth; how to work with cases with subgingival defects; how to restore discolored anterior teeth resistant to bleaching; and the criteria for decision making in compromised cases.
Marginal adaptation is a very important aspect when it comes to indirect restorations, because no matter how small the maladaptation is, it will cause small marginal gaps/openings leading to plaque accumulation, production of sulcular fluid, possibility of bone loss and periodontal disease development at the site, infiltration, and recurrent caries [11-13].
Thus, we offer extended hours and CEREC[R] CAD/CAM indirect restorations allowing patients to receive permanent crowns, inlays and/or onlays in a single visit.
Traditionally restorative dentists prefer to place a core restoration and perform tooth preparation for indirect restorations at the same patient visit.
Cementation procedures for bonding veneers--The longevity and success of indirect restorations are influenced by patient and operator.
