the treatment was visualized with the help of
a mock-up. All the relevant parameters were
checked on the basis of a chairside-fabricated provisional.

The teeth of the patient were prepared,
impressions were taken and provisionals
were placed. Clearly improved results were
achieved at this preliminary stage. The permanent veneers were layered on refractory
dies using IPS e.max Ceram. A mixture of
Mamelon and Essence (white) materials produced the opacity required for concealing
the dark tooth structure. The restorations
were individualized with Dentin and Transpa
as well as Opal Effect materials. The placed
veneers showed excellent symmetry and a
very pleasing esthetic result.
