Porcelain veneers offer our patients a valid option to improve the colour, shape and alignment of their anterior teeth.
However, it is essential for a successful treatment to follow an appropriate case selection and to implement specific clinical protocols. Clinicians need to master how to properly treatment plan and execute tooth preparation, impression, temporization and cementation to achieve expected outcomes. The focus of this hands-on program is to provide general dentists with key factors in achieving predictable esthetic outcomes with porcelain veneers. In this presentation a review of prosthodontic treatment planning as well as indications and contraindications for porcelain veneers will be provided. A systematic approach to tooth preparation, impression, temporization and cementation will be discussed.
