Article title

Composite Inlays as A Modern Way of Posterior Restorations in the Dental Arch


Title variants

Languages of publication



Modern restorative dentistry offers many methods of restoring qualitative cavities within the clinical crowns. Due to the concept of maintaining continuity of the dental arch and maintaining the correct plane of occlusion, for reconstruction of posterior teeth, there are especially recommended indirect restorations, which are made in the dental laboratory, i.e. crown inlays.The aim of the study was based on the literature to describe indications, classifications and advantages of indirect composite inlays. Additionally, factors affecting the durability of indirect composite inlays and the influence on stomatognathic system were noted. Authors concluded that composite inlays can be recommended restoration method, not only in situations of loss of clinical crown tissue, but also in situations where it is necessary as structural reinforcement, e.g., in the case of Cracked Tooth Syndrome or Molar Incisor Hypomineralization.
