CASE 09 - MINIMAL VENEERS
Feldspathic porcelain is the material that mimics enamel the best, from the optical, mechanical and biological points of view. So, if a tooth looses enamel - either by accident, erosion or wear - feldspathic veneers are the best way to restore it. It is a complex process though, one which requires careful planning, an extremely good technician and maximum precision during all the moments of the treatment. In this case, we performed whitening and placed 4 veneers on the front teeth to replace the enamel that was lost due to erosion with no or minimal preparation of the teeth (no injection involved!). On the canines the amount of tooth substance lost was less significant and we decided to restore them with composites only.
