Indirect posterior partial restorations may offer a viable and cost-effective treatment option for the restoration of extensively decayed teeth. An increasing variety of restoration materials are available on the market nowadays, which makes the material choice a difficult decision. In this article, the most important criteria of selection are presented to guide the dentist in the selection of the restoration material.
