Tooth 46 after endodontic treatment. To make an onlay, access to the pulp chamber was reconstructed and prepared with Estelite Asteria A3B
An alginate impression (Hydrogum 5, Zhermack) was taken while making sure that the impression surface had no bubbles
After 2 minutes the impression was developed with an extra hard Shore A 85/90 low viscosity silicone (Quick Die, Bisco)
The tooth structure was remodeled with two masses: A3B for dentin and OcE for enamel. The sectional technique entails making the marginal crest first, then performing the anatomical stratification towards the center and completing
Occlusal sulci were characterized using Estelite Color Dark Brown. The artifact was finished and polished in situ on the silicone model to obtain an optimum marginal adaptation and a precise contact point for the onlay
The same composite used for making the prosthetic artifact was used for cementing, after slightly warming it up to make it flow more easily
The restoration was pressed slowly and constantly in situ until it was perfectly seated. Excess material was then removed
Upon completion of the cementation, the restoration appeared excellently integrated and this is even more evident after hydrating the tooth
