Interproximal integrity of posterior partial-coverage ceramic restorations: Sequence of delivery and finishing
Liebenberg, William H.
The conservative, nonretentive cavity design of partial-coverage ceramic restorations provides a number of distinct advantages over traditional cast-metal options. However, unique challenges are associated with precise delivery of the restoration and the cleanup of excess luting resin. Restorative success and long-term gingival health are dependent on interproximal integrity at the restoration-tooth interface. This article examines the variables that affect this integrity and introduces a number of innovative techniques that assure meticulous delivery of posterior partial-coverage ceramic restorations.
