Porcelain Onlays
When a silver/mercury amalgam ages, it deforms due to years of stress and trauma.  Often times this deformation results in the fracture of the supporting tooth structure, as the filling acts as a wedge.  In the tooth pictured, the restoration of choice was a natural looking porcelain onlay, rather than a more invasive full coverage crown.
