Goncalves/Albuquerque Jr/Motta/Polloni/Pedrazzi

Pages: 171-175

Factors such as to oth conservation, occlusion, patient age, and the time required for the execution of this type of restoration should also be considered.

After 3 years of observation, the restoration shows excellent function, suggesting its appropriateness for special clinical situations.
