Abstract

Due to the increased predictability of current bonding procedures and the improved properties of today's composite materials, large Class II and cuspal build-up direct composite resin restorations are routinely performed. Biological considerations and the stress associated with polymerization shrinkage are key factors that need to be considered during the treatment planning phase. This article demonstrates a combination of concepts and techniques to reduce the stress associated with polymerization shrinkage in large restorations, thus potentially improving the longevity of the restoration.
