A Clinical Evaluation of Ceramic Laminate Veneers


PMID: 1290574

The objective of this study was to make a clinical quality evaluation of resin-bonded ceramic veneers placed in general practice. Ceramic veneers were evaluated by four independent examiners according to the California Dental Association guidelines for evaluation of dental care. In addition, bleeding and margin index and mode of tooth preparation were recorded. None of the veneers had been replaced and only two had fractured. Almost all veneers received a satisfactory rating regarding surface, color, and margin integrity. More than half of the veneers had a satisfactory anatomical form. The bleeding index was comparable to that reported for other types of crowns. An equigingival or subgingival margin was most common.
