The presented cases describe the use of ceramic inlays as an alternative for conventional, direct restoration of crown lesions in the posterior teeth. Selected teeth were vital molars with class I and II Black caries lesions, in a normal occlusion relation and without periodontal changes. Ceramic restorations are considered an excellent option for restoring posterior tooth morphology, when the aesthetics needs are superior and cavity size exceed the indication for direct composite restorations. Clinical studies have shown that the success of ceramic inlays depends on the adhesion between the surface of the tooth and the inlay, with a success rate of between 85% – 89.6%. Conclusions The use of inlays as a minimally invasive solution represents a progress in prosthodontic treatment, but the success depends on the correct conception of the treatment plan and on the clinical-technological execution.
