Dr. Luigi Stagno D’alcontres and Dr. Leonardo Calciani deserve a special mention because they presented cases that were very well managed and with a nice final results.

The present contest on adhesive posterior restorations was set to submit either direct and indirect restorations in the same or different quadrants. To date, there are no clinical evidences showing the superiority of a specific conservative technique or restoration over the others; consequently, different approaches could be used to restore dental issues even in the same quadrant.

All the participants to the contest are kindly encouraged to present their cases motivating the cohice of direct vs indirect adhesive posterior restorations.

This very interesting discussion will be moderated by Prof. Marco Ferrari and Dr. Roberto Sorrentino.

During these 6 weeks only posts about adhesive posterior restorations will be accepted.
