Partial indirect CAD/CAM reconstructions, such as onlays and overlays made by ceramics or composite, are suitable to substitute worn dental amalgam fillings. These old restorations should be carefully examined as dentinal sensitivity to cold and hot might disclose dentinal cracks or cuspal fractures that could determine chronic pulpal disease or pulpal necrosis. The digital workflow in these clinical situation could be a great opportunity for the clinician to replace old fillings with new indirect restorations made by esthetics materials, such as composite or ceramics, thus improving the quality of the entire system, i.e. dental tissues and reconstruction material.
