A structurally compromised molar tooth was diagnosed for extraction and implant placement due to severe dental caries and fracture. The patient asked for a second opinion because he wanted to save his tooth. A stress-reduced semidirect restoration was designed to preserve the remaining sound tooth structure and reestablish both aesthetic and function.
The strategic polyethylene fiber lay down onto the cavity allows the creation of the bio-base of the restoration which is the foundation for the long-term success of the semidirect onlay composite restoration.
