Crowns and other extra-coronal restorations: resin-bonded metal restorations

Br Dent J. 2002 Aug 10;193(3):135-8, 141-2. doi: 10.1038/sj.bdj.4801506.


Resin-bonded metal restorations is the final part of the series. Cast metal restorations which rely on adhesion for attachment to teeth are attractive because of their potential to be much more conservative of tooth structure than conventional crowns which rely on preparation features providing macromechanical resistance and retention.
