AbstractMetallic inlay restoration provide a good alternative to dental amalgam or gold rstoration.There is uncertainty relative to the longevity of metallic inlay restorations. Recently published long-term research studies reveal general clinical performance trends. These trends are discussed while presenting a ceramic inlay case. Successful clinical use of metallic inlay materials is absolutely dependent on the creation of an uncompromised adhesive tooth/metal interface. Metal inlay restorations perform well in terms of long-term retentionand anatomic contour stability. These restorations all experience limited margin deterioration that does not predispose to marginal discoloration or secondary caries. Patients rarely suffer from postoperative sensitivity secondary to metallic inlay placement. This case report presents a patient in whose tooth a metallic inlay restoration was placed.
