Classic bonded indirect restorations are laboratory fabricated and require 2 appointments: one for provisionalization and one for luting. This article describes the adhesive luting procedure, from try-in of the workpiece to finishing and polishing after the adhesive cementation, and it represents the second part of an updated technique for bonded inlays and onlays. The clinical sequence is described step by step with 2 cases. Particular attention is given to the adhesive treatment of the restoration and the cavity as well as the choice of the resin cement. Following the adhesive philosophy and due to improvements in materials and techniques, the simplified approach described may provide predictable luting restoration of the posterior dentition.
