No space for porcelain veneers? An alternative

19. August, 2015

Initial situation:

Non-precious alloy restorations, veneered with porcelain in the aesthetic/visible region ordered by the dentist

Indication & material used:

Single restorations made from dry millable CoCr sintering metal Ceramill Sintron; Fully anatomical and partially reduced.

Highlight:

Backplate anatomically contoured, to allow adequate space for the aesthetics in the anterior region

Realization:

Function and aesthetics already taken into account in the CAD software.
11 to 13 framework design: Labially + proximally anatomically reduced frameworks for the porcelain veneer. Additional reduction of the framework in the cervical area (11 to 15) for a porcelain shoulder. Restorations are anatomically contoured in the palatal and occlusal regions. Naturally reconstructed non-precious metal backplate.

Conclusion:

Highly aesthetic, natural results can be achieved, even with inadequate space availability, using the correct combination of material and utilisation of the CAD software
