Bonding: You no longer ONLY have metal or silver/mercury fillings for children to obtain. Bonding /Resin, composite fillings have come a long way, and pediatric patients can greatly benefit from that. Even metal free primary teeth crowns.

Forces: Teeth are dynamic. Unless a person is dead and no longer functions, when you eat, chew, brux, grind, clench, all of that are extreme forces and teeth are responsive to those forces. If you have a bad bite or malocclusion, teeth tend to drift as well, or tongue thrusting, or even new restorations, fillings, etc. may cause shifting of teeth.

Strength: Lab made inlays, onlays, 3/4 crowns are all stronger than chairside direct fillings, bondings, and especially gold inlays or zirconia inlays, they are very resilient and tend to hold up longer. They also cost more, but they are worth it.
