One of the principle topics for contemporary dentistry is to re-establish patient lost dental esthetic appearance.
To re-establish patient's lost dental esthetic appearance is one of the most important topics for contemporary dentistry. New treatment materials and methods have been discovered and introduced in market in order to gain this aim. Conservative and esthetic approaches, such as direct and indirect laminate veneer restorations, instead of full-ceramic crowns for anterior are preferred by most Dentist's where esthetics is really important.
To correct existing abnormalities, esthetic deficiencies and discolorations, laminate veneers are used. They are processed in two different ways: direct or indirect. Direct laminate veneers are based on the principle of application of a composite material directly to the prepared tooth surface in the dental clinic. Indirect laminate veneers may be produced from composite materials or porcelain, which are cemented to the tooth with an adhesive resin. In this case report Indirect ceramic laminate veneers were used to enhance the esthetic appearance of the young patient.
