However, with increased public awareness and its desire to look and feel better dentally, dentists are practicing MI techniques more now than ever before, especially with the improvement of adhesive dentistry. Tooth color fillings and resin veneers have benefited from many different bonding systems. CAD/CAM technology has offered patients the chance to conserve tooth structure via inlays, onlays in addition to all ceramic crowns made of of lithium disilicate (e-Max) porcelain system.
