Esthetic rehabilitation of anterior teeth with porcelain laminates and sectional veneers


Gresnigt, M; Özcan, M (2011). Esthetic rehabilitation of anterior teeth with porcelain laminates and sectional veneers. Journal of the Canadian Dental Association, 77:b143.

Abstract

Full-coverage bonded porcelain restorations offer predictable treatment options in dentistry, but a certain amount of tooth material must be removed to allow space for the required thickness of the restorative material. Laminate veneers and inlays are considered minimally invasive, but they also require removal of sound enamel. Sometimes, it may be preferable to extend the veneer preparations beyond the contact points toward the palatal surface, to hide the margins of the restoration, which necessitates removal of additional tissue. Improvements in adhesive technologies mean that small indirect restorations may be applied with removal of only a superficial layer of enamel. This clinical report describes a situation in which application of porcelain laminates and sectional veneers was chosen as the therapy of choice. A step-by-step protocol is proposed for cementation of these delicate restorations, and finishing procedures are described.
