Provision of indirect restorations is associated with more complaints and litigation than any other area of dentistry. In the third part of this series we identify possible causes of such complaints. We explore each of the stages from clinical assessment to treatment, highlighting areas which may trigger litigation when they are not addressed carefully - particularly in relation to cosmetic dentistry. The article is illustrated with clinical examples drawn from the authors' personal experience. With patients' ever-increasing expectations, the pressure to deliver quality dentistry has never been higher and will not diminish.
