PDF: PORCELAIN VENEERS - Techniques and Precautions - Basil Mizrahi


This article describes the restoration of four upper anterior teeth with porcelain veneers.


Because such treatment is usually elective, all precautions should be taken to ensure treatment is as conservative as possible.



It may also be necessary to carry out non-restorative adjunctive procedures to create a favourable environment and improve the long-term prognosis of the veneers.


Porcelain is extremely fragile and complications such as post bonding fracture may occur. 

If and when this does happen the clinician should be aware of the possible cause and how to deal with the situation.


Careful case assessment, adjunctive treatment and precise clinical and laboratory techniques are important aspects to ensure optimal longevity and aesthetics of porcelain veneers. 

Despite all precautions, post treatment complications can occur. The following case details the technique involved in restoring the maxillary incisor teeth with porcelain veneers and illustrates a post treatment complication that may arise.


The patient presented complaining about the incisors had been restored numerous times with direct composite resin to treat interproximal decay as well as to close the interdental spaces.
