Indirect restorative procedures are highly complex. They consist of many different clinical and laboratory steps, and each separate step involves a number of clinical challenges.
That's why 3M has worked with five expert clinicians to develop a consensus for best-practice recommendations in indirect restorative and prosthodontic treatments and procedures.
These are based on the latest scientific research findings and personal long-term experience in clinical environments.
Achieve better outcomes—every time, by simplifying and standardising your prosthodontic procedures with our free 80-page Success Simplified booklet & webinars.
Indirect restorative and prosthodontic procedures currently encompass over 60 clinical and laboratory steps.¹ You have an opportunity to streamline your workflow by leveraging the latest scientific research findings and long-term clinical experience from 3M. The Success Simplified program provides clinicians with an orientation on indication-specific material selection and clinical tips that improve operational efficiency. Ultimately, the simplified recommendations can help in your efforts to streamline successful prosthodontic procedure outcomes.
A standardised approach was needed to simplify dental indirect restoration workflows. 3M experts understood this challenge, and worked with clinical experts to develop Success Simplified to consolidate procedure stages into seven simple steps, while providing best practice recommendations for every indication.
The evidence-based recommendations provide repeatable best practices to follow for complex procedures. Success Simplified adds structure to everyday workflows, helping to make patient outcomes more predictable. The program enhances a clinician’s ability to make the right decisions, leading to improved practice management and higher patient satisfaction.

This concept started with a team of five international experts made up of both clinicians and academic researchers. Together, they’ve developed a consensus that’s based on the latest scientific findings, but also takes into account the challenges and constraints of a modern dental practice.
Indirect restoration procedures in dentistry include seven distinct decision-making stages. Success Simplified organises each stage into actionable steps, providing useful information on product options, selection criteria, and effective clinical techniques. Using these protocol recommendations, dental practitioners can easily choose case-specific solutions that address their unique needs.
