This report on two cases describes a novel clinical technique of fabricating amalgam inlay for cervical cavities in elderly patients. Two patients with cervical abrasion cavities having dentinal hypersensitivity were reported. The impressions of the cervical cavities were done using rubber base impression material. Later, cast was fabricated, amalgam was condensed into the cavity and an inlay was prepared. Fit of the inlay was checked on the patient, thereafter it was finished and polished and cemented into the cavity using luting glass ionomer cement.
