Until recently, restoring teeth with large defects in the posterior area involved no alternative treatment but the use of a crown, most often in combination with a post‐and‐core and forced endodontic treatment. Contemporary dental practice, however, taking advantage of developments in resin cements and adhesive technology, also includes minimally invasive restorations, such as indirect resin composite restorations and ceramic inlays, onlays, and overlays. Such restorations require little or no sacrifice of healthy tooth structure, no forced endodontic treatment, and additionally, they have the ability to imitate the behavior of healthy enamel and dentin.Since inlays, onlays, and overlays have little or no mechanical retention on the abutment tooth, occlusal adjustments are better performed after the cementation of the restoration. Especially in cases when ceramic material is preferred, the restorations are very fragile before cementation, and therefore they should not be subject to occlusal forces before bonding. However, with the completion of this procedure, the restoration acquires a rough surface and has to be repolished intraorally.Surface roughness, both in ceramic and resin composite material, is associated with faster formation and maturation of the biofilm, resulting in a more complex bacterial population. Rough surfaces are more susceptible to staining over time, whereas
