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.

The use of a composite with excellent mechanical properties and wear characteristics is most desirable.
