Objective: The clinical performance of porcelain laminate veneers was evaluated at 5 years. Method and materials: One hundred eighty-six porcelain laminate veneers were placed in 61 patients, aged 18 to 70 years, by a single operator following the same clinical procedure. At the 5-year recall, esthetics, marginal integrity, marginal discoloration, fracture rate, and patient satisfaction were recorded. Results: At recall 98.4% of the veneers were satisfactory without intervention. The retention rate was excellent, the fracture rate was very low, and the maintenance of esthetics was superior. Patient satisfaction was very high. Conclusion: Porcelain laminate veneers offer a reliable and effective procedure for the conservative and esthetic treatment of anterior teeth.
