For single tooth replacement many techniques are currently available, such as implant dentistry and metal–ceramic or all-ceramic fixed partial dentures (FPDs). However, when implant placement is not possible or not indicated, an inlay-retained FPD (IFPD) can be chosen, especially when adjacent teeth have preexisting restorations. In these cases, both metal–ceramic and fiber-reinforced composite IFPDs have some disadvantages, including loss of retention. This paper discusses all-ceramic IFPDs with zirconia frameworks, veneered with a press-on technique. The marginal area of the restorations’ retainers are always made of pressed ceramic to allow for an adhesive luting procedure; when the cavities’ depths increase, a full contour ceramic press-on is allowed all around the retainers, increasing the surface available for the adhesive approach.

Abstract

For single tooth replacement many techniques are currently available, such as implant dentistry and metal–ceramic or all-ceramic fixed partial dentures (FPDs). However, when implant placement is not possible or not indicated, an inlay-retained FPD (IFPD) can be chosen, especially when adjacent teeth have preexisting restorations. In these cases, both metal–ceramic and fiber-reinforced composite IFPDs have some disadvantages, including loss of retention. This paper discusses all-ceramic IFPDs with zirconia frameworks, veneered with a press-on technique. The marginal area of the restorations’ retainers are always made of pressed ceramic to allow for an adhesive luting procedure; when the cavities’ depths increase, a full contour ceramic press-on is allowed all around the retainers, increasing the surface available for the adhesive approach.
