Porcelain laminate veneer on a highly discoloured tooth: a case report.
J Can Dent Assoc. 2010; 76:a126.JC

Abstract

Esthetic treatment of a single darkened tooth represents a great challenge to the dental practitioner. The properties of dental ceramic-colour stability, mechanical strength, clinical longevity, esthetic appearance and compatibility with periodontal tissues-make this material a good choice for such treatment. We present a case of restoration of a single, highly darkened anterior tooth with a feldspathic porcelain veneer. Resolution involved preparation of the dental structure guided by orientation grooves and provisional restoration using composite resin, a silicone impression and adhesive luting. Conservative use of porcelain laminate veneers provides satisfactory esthetic outcomes and preserves sound tooth structure. The patient was very satisfied with the result and had no complaints during 2 years of follow-up.
