The decisions do not end with the ceramic choice as each restorative system has a preferred cementation protocol. Dr. Gillespie will also outline the advantages and disadvantages of everything from total etch resin cements to self primed resin cements, and when to utilize self adhesive resin cements or stick with resin modified glass ionomer cements.

The goal of a responsible clinician is to provide his or her patients with functional, long lasting, and esthetically pleasing restorations, in the most conservative and bio-compatible fashion; direct composite restorations fulfills the ideal requirements mentioned above. When patients present with severe dental wear, dentin exposure or sensitivity caused by occlusal wear, restoring those teeth in a conservative manner is equally desirable. Too often the first choice of treatment is to further destroy already worn-out teeth by the use of traditional crown and bridge techniques.
