After the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify the indications and requirement of Partial Coverage treatment modality.

Restoring endodontically treated broken down and excessively carious teeth can be quite a challenge to the restorative dentist. The decision to restore an endodontically treated tooth with partial crown vs. full coverage crown should be based on numerous factors. What is the amount of tooth structure left? What is the tooth location in the dental arch? How deep and wide is the pulp chamber? These are few factors among others that influence such a decision.
This presentation will discuss in almost all factors involved in case selection, preparation guidelines, imaging and digital impression techniques, as well as bonding protocol of Inlays, Onlays, and Partial Crowns.
