Enduring glass-ceramic restorations greatly depend on the quality of adhesion of the crown to enamel and dentin. Proper isolation is vital to the success of bonded ceramic restorations. The rubber dam has long been considered the primary method of preventing contamination of the operating field, a crucial requisite for adhesion. However, many dentists do not use rubber dam isolation due to its penchant for slowing down procedures. The authors present a case report that describes a technique for the indirect bonding of a ceramic restoration to a maxillary first molar using rubber dam isolation in conjunction with a floss ligature,a method that is aimed at optimizing operator effectiveness and efficiency.

Dental fluorosis is a condition that produces unesthetic coloration of enamel because of excessive fluoride ingestion during enamel formation. Its appearance can range in severity from mildly white and opaque to dark brown and can lead a patient to seek dental treatment. Historically, these lesions have been masked, either with direct or indirect restorations, but more conservative treatment options are now available, including the combination of microabrasion and bleaching. This clinical report describes the use of these treatment options to address a young patient's dental fluorosis.
