Dental Excellence Video 21: Occlusal Veneers to open the vertical dimension with wear patients

This is the 21st video in my Dental Excellence Video Series.

In this video, I talk about occlusal veneers to open the vertical dimension for wear patients that may not require full coverage restorations for the molars.

During the video, I share with you images from two cases I completed in my practice. The first case was finished 13 years ago but I saw him this week during his hygiene appointment and I included new 13-year post op photos taken Wednesday.

The second case was completed this year in my practice.


Thank you again for being a member of my online community and remember…

You can do this kind of dentistry!

I believe that beautiful dentistry with precise fit and occlusion is not just for the gurus.

All the best,


P.S. If you are interested in this kind of dentistry, I believe you would enjoy my Online Seminar. Altering the Vertical Dimension Case Studies.

This seminar will feature 3 detailed case studies teaching a different vertical dimension concept for each case. These case studies are from patients that I have successfully treated in my own practice over the past 21 years.

The first case study is the 13-year-old case from my new Dental Excellence video so you can be confident these techniques work in a regular clinical practice.

During this online seminar, you will learn:

  • The one thing you NEVER want to do when you alter the vertical dimension!
  • The starting point to assess if the vertical even needs to be altered.
  • Three different options to alter the vertical and when to use each.
  • Should I test out the new vertical with a splint first?
  • Will my patient be able to speak properly after I alter the vertical?
  • What should I do if my patient has speaking issues after I alter the vertical?
  • Can I predict if my patient can tolerate an alteration to the vertical dimension?
  • Will my patient have pain after if I alter the vertical dimension?
  • How stable is the new vertical dimension?
  • How should I design the anterior guidance to work with my new vertical dimension?
