Porcelain veneers, when performed correctly, can yield exquisitely beautiful results with minimal tooth preparation and no negative side effect; thus bringing great joy to both patients and clinician. However, if performed incorrectly, they can easily become a destructive, unpredictable, and often unsuccessful procedure. This may be the reason why full crowns are far more popular, although veneers fully replace crowns for badly damaged teeth with better results. Consistent patient satisfaction requires more than good restorative principles, it also requires excellent communication with the patient to understand their unique esthetic perspective and goals and then blending this information with known esthetic principles. It is also of great importance to consider the longevity of our restorations, which always involves occlusal management.
Thus great results with porcelain veneers and PJCs requires the thorough understanding of restorative principles, dental materials, smile design, and occlusion. Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz will present his practical, logical, and scientifically based approach to incorporating all of these important components into an easy, logical, and highly predictable system that will virtually guarantee excellent results and patient satisfaction every time.
