In this Technique Geek video, KOMET USA offers a video how-to with Drs. Michael C. Fling and James C. Kessler, demonstrating how they used a Round-Ball Diamond  to ensure an esthetic outcome.

Factors that affect the success of these restorations include appropriate preparation design, adequate reduction, marginal adaptation, stress management and distribution of occlusal forces. The following technique honors these factors.

Appropriate reduction
The adhesive properties of bonding allow significant stresses to be applied to the tooth-restoration interface. A tooth preparation maintained in mineralized enamel ensures optimal bond strength while preserving tooth structure. However, if a final restoration contour is within the confines of the pre-existing tooth, irreversible tooth reduction is necessary.
