Color matching dissimilar restoration and material types can be a challenge for the esthetic restorative dentist. The clinical decisionmaking process is difficult when both veneer and crown restorations are used. Ceramic veneers tend to be more translucent yet easier to match if the stump shade is not discolored. The reason is that the nondiscolored stump shade can be used as the correct-colored canvas for predictable shade matching. Crowns have substructure substrates with varying levels of translucency that commonly are not the same as the tooth structure underlying the veneer. Therefore, it is more challenging to match crown restorations to cemented veneer restorations than vice versa.
