How many full coverage crowns did you cut in the past week, month, year? If the intact tooth guides our structural analysis, material selection & restorative plan; we will create a highly bonded restoration that mimics the biomechanics of the intact dentition. Biomimetic dentistry preserves pulp vitality through tooth conservation and advanced adhesive techniques. This restorative approach ensures a strong connection top to bottom and side to side. What is the key to increasing the longevity of an adhesive restoration? The simple answer: maximize bond strength and decrease polymerization stress. In this lecture we will introduce strategies to increase bond strength and techniques to reduce polymerization and residual stress. Mastering these concepts should answer the first question: Zero
