This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.
