Case Report: Ceramic Microlaminates for Esthetic Restoration

Claudia Cia Worschech, DDS, MS, PhD

Pages: 4855

Ceramic microlaminates are an extremely thin veneer that can be fixed over natural teeth without preparation or with minimally invasive preparation. Specific surface treatments are carried out over the tooth and ceramic using materials such as acid, silane, various adhesive systems, and resin cement. These procedures increase the ceramic resistance and esthetics of the microlaminate restorations. This type of restoration is indicated to solve esthetic problems such as diastemata; inappropriate contours, size, and form of teeth; and small color alterations. Treatment with ceramic microlaminates allows maintenance of healthy dentition during the execution of planning and treatment. The use of a waxup is one important way to determine the exact amount of dental structure that needs to be removed and to define where ceramic should be added. This article demonstrates the use of ceramic microlaminates via a case report. Int J Microdent 2009;1:4855
