The preparation design for amalgams was well understood, and mechanical retention was a fundamental requirement. Reliable adhesion to both dentin and enamel was utopian, metal free ceramics were not durable, and light-cured resins had yet to be developed. Today, we have a multitude of materials and techniques that enable the dentist to produce direct and indirect restorations that are practically undetectable for both the dentist and the patient. |read PDF|
