Dental Excellence: Longevity of Porcelain Veneers

I have created a new series of Dental Excellence videos that teach clinical techniques and case studies from my practice.

In this first video I explain the most important factor for the longevity of porcelain veneers. A 10-year old porcelain veneer case is used to illustrate the concept.

    very good video and it is really fantastic. However I have a question to you.If a patient present to you requeting veeners on his or hers upper central incisors with mesial composite restorations would you remove them or keep them and include in your teeth preparations?If you have decided to keep the restorations and prepare them for veeners do you have any valid references? Looking forward to hear from you.Thank you.

    • I would try and keep the preparations conservative and in enamel wherever possible. I think the composite restorations decision would depend on the size of the restorations and whether or not I placed them originally. If I did not originally place them I would likely replace them.

  16. Great videos and very helpful
