A Ten Year Review of a Direct Bonded Veneer Case

134 Rating(s).


Posted on By Gerald Benjamin In Anterior/Esthetic

After 10 years, this 50+ year old female wanted to convert her direct bonded veneer case to porcelain. The case was completed using Cosmedent's Renamel (both hybrid and microfill) The only tooth that I did not veneer was tooth #9. This patient sees her 'regular dentist' for hygiene appointments so I haven't had the opportunity to remove the slight stain that I see. (Many patients (and colleagues ) view me as a specialist rather than a 'regular dentist' which can be problematic at times.)
In the biggest picture, I believe that direct resin veneers placed correctly are a valid modality for cosmetic improvements.

Very nice and stabile. The slight stain is nothing after 10 years. How long does it take you to do a case like this?
Thank you for sharing your impressive work
Warmly

Hi Snjezanna; Thanks so much. Since I am going to replace the resin with porcelain, I am not concerned about the interproximal staining. It took about 5-6 hours. Best regards, Gerald

Hi Maurice, Thanks so much. No tooth structure was lost when I did this case. The misconceptions about resin are troubling and the lack of high level training with the material is problematic. I virtually NEVER place a crown in the mouth of a 20,30 or 40 year old patient (unless post molar endo) preferring to the use of bonded resin. The postponing of mass tooth removal for 20 or more years enables the patient to have one tooth for one life (Thank, Maurice). All of this said, our young colleagues are unable to do what is in the patient's best interest because insurance reimbursement for these procedures (direct vs indirect) is below the level of financial survival. Best regards, Gerald

Very nice case Gerald. I've seen porcelain cases that don't look as nice after 10 years. Additive treament is a great service for your patients. Take care Brian Mills
