Patient presents with failing, stained composite resin bonding
that repaired previous tooth fractures.
Note close up of 3 incisors requiring permanent restoration
Incisors with resin composite removed prior to conservative
preparation for porcelain laminate veneers.
Porcelain laminate veneers prior to bonded cementation. Note
thin ceramic allowing for natural color of tooth structure to
transmit through ceramic.
Shade matching of underlying tooth structure in both color and B&W
to obtain 3 dimensional color information. Note conservative nature
of preparations and relatively atraumatic outcome of soft tissue.
Rubber dam isolation of veneer preparations to control moisture
and facilitate optimal cementation outcome.
Final outcome after cementation of 4 conservative laminate
veneers on 4 incisors. Note natural color and translucency
harmonizing with natural dentition.
Final outcome of bonded ceramic veneers from side view. Note
natural anatomy of ceramic veneers facilitating natural light
transmission, translucency and light scatter.
Final outcome of bonded porcelain laminate veneers. Note soft
tissue health complementing natural appearance of veneers.
