Major and minor chipping of veneering porcelain are two of the most frequent complications in all-ceramic restorations with zirconia frameworks. In cases of major chipping, replacement of the affected restoration may be necessary. High-strength lithium disilicate ceramic offers new options to serve as veneering material in a sintering technique or as repair material for chipping in combination with the adhesive technique. The purpose of three case presentations here was to describe the use of lithium disilicate ceramic on zirconia frameworks for reliable and esthetic veneering in the posterior region and to repair extended chipping in conventional veneering materials.
