Abstract: Coronal margin relocation (CMR) is a technique that is being increasingly used to manage subgingival defects in cavities in posterior teeth. The aim of this case report and literature review is to arm the dental practitioner with up-to-date scientific literature on this topic, such that they can appropriately incorporate CMR into their practice. Inclusion criteria for the literature review were the use of composite as the material used for CMR and a subsequent indirect restoration. Medline was searched and manual search of bibliographies was carried out. This yielded nine in vitro studies and 12 clinical reports that were considered in this review.

Clinical relevance: The CMR technique is being used more widely in dental practice and it is important for dental practitioners to be aware of the evidence base on which to guide their practice.
