Ceramic veneers: Protocols for minimal preparation and predictable bonding

Since centuries there has been a desire to look better and nicer. We all know that the smile is the biggest contrast on the human face and that makes it even more important to harmonize with the face. Though there is a never ending marketing machine to have whiter teeth and brighter teeth, but we all know that nature has a certain design element built it which can be modified to a limit.

Why should the teeth/ prosthesis we give to our patients be any different? We need to change form and sometimes function but it should all be done in harmony with the face and personality of the individual.

In the same way Ceramic veneers should be made to look, feel and function, like natural teeth. The long term success defined by key elements of biology, function and esthetics is possible with how successful one is in bonding restorations to tooth tissues and the correct treatment planning This presentation focuses and involves discussing how we can conserve tooth tissue and achieves results in restoring them with minimally compromising on tooth. It will also suggest and highlight the right bonding protocols.

These concepts and more with simplified techniques in regards to Ceramic Veneers will be presented in this lecture.
