# Shoulder with bevel Finish Line
Indications: • Proximal boxes of onlays and inlays • Labial finish line of metal ceramics • Occlusal shoulder of onlays 
Advantages:  • Superior marginal adaptation • Resists distortion • Facilitates removal of unsupported enamel rods
Disadvantages: • Requires subgingival extension • Detection of post cementation caries is difficult

# Chamfer Finish Line
Indications: • Cast metal restorations • Lingual aspect of metal ceramics
Advantages:  • Conservative • Good marginal adaptation • Provides bulk
Disadvantages: • Improper fabrication may result in an unsupported tip

# Knife edge Finish Line
Indications: • Young patients • MOD onlay • Inaccessible areas • Finish lines in cementum
