Deep subgingival margin elevation is a much-debated topic in adhesive and restorative dentistry. The hydrophobic trait of adhesive materials challenges the restorative procedure of cavities with deep subgingival margins since bonding and isolation by means of rubber dam is complicated. By relocating the deep subgingival preparation outline to epigingival, or supragingival with a direct composite restoration, the impression procedure and the use of rubber dam is simplified and the bonding of an indirect adhesive restoration can be performed more reliably. In the English-language literature, the term 'Deep Margin Elevation' is reserved for this approach. This article discusses the rationale and clinical implementation of Deep Margin Elevation. The current knowledge about the coronal relocated preparation margin is growing and is tersely summarized in this article with special attention to adhesive bonding between dentine, composites, and ceramic.
