The resin-bonded fixed partial denture (RB-FPD) is the first restorative treatment option to be considered in cases where one or more teeth are missing. The indications for implants, conventional FPDs, and adhesive FPDs, considering the general and dental conditions of the patient, are discussed in this article. When the RB-FPD is the chosen option, a direct or indirect technique, a cantilever-type or fixed-fixed design, and materials to be used need to be selected. The choice will depend on a variety of factors, such as interproximal space at the connector area, anterior or posterior location, the skills of the dentist, esthetics, and the patientís wishes. The RB-FPD can be made using various techniques and materials.
