Share Abstract:

Predicting esthetics of laminate veneers without tooth preparation.

Elledge, Dean A.; Mixsdn, James M.; Cowan, Robert D.; Horvath, Gabrielia

PMID: 2374796

High expectations may contribute to stress in the patient and dentist during dental treatment. Esthetic and restorative results can be predicted for laminate veneers by using a powder blower and a liquid dispenser preoperatively to form self-cured resin veneers. Trial veneers are formed in a precision salt and pepper technique that conserves materials and time. The trial veneers are placed, without tooth preparation, on the treatment site so that the patient can preview the planned treatment and so that the dentist can explain proposed treatment in a reversible procedure. This may circumvent misunderstandings between dentist and patient and allow the consideration of alternate treatment plans.
