Re sin bonded or r e sin r e t a ined bridge s (RBBs/RRBs) are minimally invasive fixed prostheses which rely on composite resin cements for retention. These restorations were first described in the 1970s and since then they have evolved significantly.

The major disadvantage of conventional fixed partial denture is the destruction of tooth structure required for the abutment preparation upon which the retainers will be placed. Resin bonded fixed partial denture is an alternative to the conventional fixed partial dentures which require only minimal preparation of the abutments.
