The Science and Art of Porcelain Laminate Veneers details the expanding field of porcelain laminate veneers in esthetic dentistry. It guides the esthetic dentist in understanding the needs of the patient and formulating a treatment plan that includes not only esthetic considerations, such as color and smile design, but also occlusal, periodontal, and functional requirements. In addition, it discusses the use of porcelain laminate veneers in diastema closure, the treatment of tetracycline discoloration, and in conjunction with orthodontic therapy. New techniques to ensure minimally invasive tooth preparation and maximum space creation for the dental technician are explored, and impression materials for porcelain laminate veneers are compared. The detailed guides to alternative porcelain materials and their step-by-step applications make this book invaluable for general practitioners, dental technicians, and the entire esthetic team.
