Today's dentistry should aim at minimizing cost, simplifying techniques, allowing procedural revi sions and finally at facilitating corrections and repairs. The development of direct or indirect light-cured composite resin copings, coupled with ball attachments (Dalbo-Rotex according to Brunner) and a suprastructure which is veneered by means of light-cured composite or acrylic resin, may offer a cost-effective perio-overdenture without compromising on periodontal health and providing optimal esthetics. Since July 2003, eighteen new perio-overdentures with a total of 70 copings made of light-cured microhybrid composite resin were delivered. The aim of this article is to discuss the technical aspects and preliminary results regarding this technique.
