During recent years, novel resin biomaterials and clinical techniques have appeared. Nevertheless, the process of making final restorations is still tedious and time consuming; demanding highly specific skills from the clinicians. The wide array of options and techniques does not make the decision of the clinician any easier.

The lecture will focus in a simplified direct philosophy called the 3 x 5 and will give the insights necessary to decide when better go direct or indirect. In addition it will prove the relevance of value and tooth form in modern dentistry.
