Loss of tooth structure has been a common mishap, occurring due to various reasons like fracture, caries or mechanical preparation. Maxillary and mandibular molars have been the most common teeth experiencing a major amount of masticatory load, therefore facing an increased risk of fracture. The most commonly fractured cusps have been the functional cusps as the load bearing has always been high. Loss of such areas may not be restorable with direct techniques and restorative materials like amalgam or composite. Therefore, a need to replace the functional cusp requires replacement through indirect restorative procedures using cast metal restorations like inlay.
