Rehabilitation with Feldspathic Veneers and Jacket in Aesthetic Zone: A Clinical Case
Baptista Pereira, João / Amorim, Tomás / Melo, Teresa Pinheiro de / Laranjeira, João / Fonseca, T. Luís
Female patient, healthy, smoker, 44 years old, attended the clinic unhappy with the aesthetics of her smile due to the presence of extensive pigmented restorations and an old metal-ceramic crown. A diagnostic wax-up was made to plan and preview the final shape of the teeth. Tooth 22 presented periapical pathology, therefore endodontic treatment was executed. Composite restorations of teeth 11, 12 and 22 were replaced. It was also performed an external bleaching with carbamide peroxide at 10%. In tooth 22 was performed a gingivectomy to level the margin gums with tooth 12. Teeth 11, 12 and 22 were prepared for feldspathic veneers and tooth 21 for a feldspathic jacket. After the final impressions, the provisionals were made with a bis-acril resin. The veneers adhesion was accomplished through a resin cement, using a rubber dam isolation.
Ceramic veneers are indicated in the rehabilitation of the second sextant when it is aesthetically compromised. Through a minimally invasive preparation, veneers allow us to change the color and shape of the teeth.
Ceramic is a material with excellent optical properties, it has a similar appearance to the natural tooth. It also allows rehabilitation with a maximum preservation of dental structures, due to a high adhesive strength. In addition to these factors, ceramic ensures the longevity of the treatment, making it the ideal material for this rehabilitation.
