The step-by-step procedure is presented for treating a patient with Cerinate porcelain veneers using a minimal tooth preparation technique and bonding with Ultra-Bond resin. In addition to images of the step-by-step treatment procedure, images of before treatment, immediately post treatment, and at a six-year follow-up are presented.
The six-year follow-up results are completely favorable with excellent gingival health and no change in the shade or the condition of the veneers.
The difficulties of successfully repairing the fractured porcelain of porcelain fused to metal fixed prostheses is described. When fractured porcelain involves the gingival margin of a crown, then the repair may involve bonding to porcelain, and metal, and root dentin. The merits of Den-Mat products for bonding to these surfaces are explained.
A clinical case report is presented in which a Cerinate porcelain “shield” (a partial veneer) is bonded over the facial surface of a tooth root and a crown with fractured porcelain at the gingival. The procedure is simple to perform and the results are excellent.
The purpose of this study was to process a ceramic material with a fine leucite particle size using hot pressing techniques, to increase the flexural strength, reliability, and ease of use. Cerinate Pressable Porcelain exhibited significantly higher biaxial flexural strength than Empress®Pressable Porcelain. It was concluded that Cerinate can be pressed in different press furnaces without compromising its superior strength.
A brief history of the development of modern porcelain veneer technology is presented. The unique strength of Cerinate porcelain is the basis for the conservative concept of veneers with little or no tooth preparation. Also, the ability to bond veneers over existing metal, ceramic, or composite resin substrates is mentioned.
A clinical case is described to demonstrate the technique for veneers with no preparation of the teeth. Ultra-Bond is used as the resin cement for the veneers. Very successful results are obtained with a completely straight forward and easy-to-perform technique.
