Abstract : Minimum intervention dentistry has become a field of great interest in modern restorative dentistry. Preserving tooth structure is critical for the longevity of teeth and restorations. Therefore, various defect-oriented restorations have evolved. Loss of tooth structure may be due to caries or non-carious lesions such as tooth wear. An increasing number of patients visit dental offices with tooth wear. The main problem in case of tooth wear is usually related to occlusal surfaces. In the past, treatment of such patients typically required full crown preparations, with significant loss of sound dental tissue. Another classic indication of full crowns is the need for cuspal coverage. The development of new technologies, dental materials and adhesives has made minimally invasive alternative restorations possible while facilitating tissue preservation. According the literature; cuspal coverage and restoration of occlusal surfaces can be obtained with these minimally invasive alternative restorations. Many names have been described for these full crown alternative restorations which make their understanding and selection may be confusing for dental students, dentists and dental technicians. The purpose of this article is to a) summarize these restorations that may compete the full crowns so that they are kept into the minds of dentists when a tooth is planned to receive cuspal coverage. b) suggest a classification of these new group of restorations for educational purposes c) link different names for the same restoration described in the literature
