Abstract

The use of the composite to restore the posterior cavities is a common use in the daily clinical practice. But this type of restorations will face 2 major difficulties:

  1. The proper build-up of the contact point on the long term  
  2. Tooth sensitivity following the restoration

The shrinkage of the composite during the setting is responsible of most of these complications. Different solutions are proposed to minimize the effect, layering technique, sectional build up, selective bonding.

We will pass in review several of these different types of restorations:

  • The proper build-up of the contact point on the long term  
  • Tooth sensitivity following the restoration
  • The bonding principle will be detailed and the importance of the proper bonding technique to the success of the restoration
  • The difference between the different bonding techniques and what to select according to the type of cavity
  • The different filling techniques will be reviewed and pointing out the advantages and disadvantages of each of them
  • The effect of the shrinkage on the cavity and the way to reduce its consequences
