Abstract: Current thinking on cavity design revolves around an increased understanding of the need for extremely conservative cavity preparations that are determined mainly by the extent of the caries at the enamel-dentine junction, rather than upon preconceived ideas embraced by the term ‘outline form’.

Clinical relevance: Clinicians should always be aware of the danger of the repeat restoration cycle.

Author notes: R J Elderton, BDS, PhD, Professor of Preventive and Restorative Dentistry, University of Bristol Dental School, Lower Maudlin Street, Bristol BS1 2LY, UK.

Objective: To discuss potential shortcomings of restorative dentistry and the need for a preventive philosophy.
