Resin-bonded prostheses were first described by Rochette in 1973. They achieved popularity because of their conservative and noninvasive nature. The success rate of these prostheses is related to the adhesive system and to the design of tooth preparation for optimum resistance and retention form. Tooth modification to improve retention of the retainers is one of the crucial factors that affects the strength and durability of the bonding. Tooth modification is affected by the enamel available for bonding and variations in the basic technique. This paper highlights the characteristics of tooth preparation and various modifications in the design of resin-bonded prostheses.
