Would you have cut down the palatal here? I chose not to – there was no sign of cracking within the dentine, which is when the cracks are a problem. The base was giant. So, the palatal was untouched.
Relatively conservative onlay. Resistance and retention are probably good, as I couldn’t remove the temporary without cutting it off, and there was no bonding agents used.
The little dark areas are hard as a rock and, based on the surrounding teeth, are just little bits of deformed enamel.
