Are you currently providing porcelain laminate veneers in your practice? Not having the aesthetic success you hoped for? This lecture will provide an introduction into what you should consider when incorporating this treatment option, case presentations and a discussion of managing patients’ expectations. From planning and consideration of alternative approaches to execution, the necessary steps will be presented, and many practice tips will be provided, to help attendees efficiently achieve desired clinical results. This lecture will provide a comprehensive and practical demonstration of how to execute porcelain laminate veneers, including the most common problems and how to avoid these mistakes in your dental office.
