Sažetak Esthetic composite bonding technique has had a great impact in the area of fixed prosthodontics, following the conservative techiques that are proving mainly successful in the replacing of a single tooth.
In this way single anterior missing tooth are usually replaced. Further developments included efforts to increase the resistance of the bonding materials to cohesive fracture by the use of class III type preparations at the proximal surfaces of abutment teeth. With the current availability of visible - light - cured composite materials, these can be used efficiently to fabricate any of the all - resin bonded protheses.To use a bonded pontic in such applications a number of conditions must be met. First, the patient must understand the limitation of the restorations: lack of strength, and inability to function as a natural tooth. Second, the patient's occlusion must be favorable: positive posterior occlusal support, absence of parafunctional habits and eccentric pattern of movement that permits
the sharing of guidance responsibility by teeth not involved in the units of the bridge, particularly with respect to protrusive and lateral protrusive mandibular movements. The materials and techiques required to prepare and insert an all - resin bonded bridge are described and illustrated in the paper.
