Figure 4: Stepwise technique (a-f). A deep carious lesion before and after excavation (a and b), followed by a calcium-hydroxide-containing base material and a provisional restoration (c). During the treatment interval, the retained demineralized dentin indicates slow progression of the lesion, evidenced by a darker demineralized dentin (d). After final excavation (e), the permanent restoration is made (f)
