Porcelain veneers as an alternative for the esthetic treatment of stained anterior teeth: Clinical report
Filho, Alfredo Meyer/Vieira, Luiz Clovis Cardoso/Baratieri, Luiz Narciso/Lopes, Guilherme Carpena
The esthetic treatment of anterior teeth with porcelain veneers is a conservative and lasting treatment option. When the tooth is severely discolored, the clinician must choose a ceramic system very carefully, because translucent materials, such as hot-pressed ceramic, require excessive reduction of the dental structure to mask the discoloration. This article describes a technique in which discolored teeth were masked in a conservative and esthetically pleasing way with feldspathic porcelain veneers.
