Inlays and onlays ensure conservation of sound tooth structure without undermining the tooth’s mechanical and physical properties, while composite offers both the opportunity for correction before cementation and long-term reparability. In separate chapters, the author addresses diagnosis, using radiographs, indications for amalgam, respect for natural dental structures, clinical application of adhesive systems, cavity preparation, buildup and preparation, reconstruction of endodontically treated teeth, the steps involved in creating inlays and onlays, proper occlusal contacts, and finally, the much-debated topic of enamel-dentin fracture lines. Through the presentation of a multitude of clinical cases with long-term follow-up, the author provides everyday clinical documentation of the functional and esthetically pleasing results that can be achieved using his multidisciplinary approach.
