Use of resin-bonded partial coverage ceramic restorations to treat incomplete fractures in posterior teeth: A clinical report

These goals can be addressed with resin-bonded posterior ceramic restorations, but long-term integrity rests on the efficiency of the restoration'sbond to the dental hard tissues.
