When veneers are used for cosmetic reconstructions, preserving tooth substance is a high priority. In these cases, patients are often treated using highly individualized, hand-layered veneers. The challenge when it comes to dental technology is in precisely reproducing the natural play of colors and light within a limited space. This requires veneering ceramics with high luminosity, such as the new VITA LUMEX AC, which reliably produces ideal light dynamics, even with minimum wall thicknesses. In addition, the veneering ceramic applied must have good fracture strength in order to ensure safe manual reworking and seating with this delicate type of reconstruction.
In the following case study, Master Dental Technician Marcio Breda and Dentist Dr. Estefânia Donato, show how a patient was supplied with highly esthetic hand-layered veneers made from the leucite-reinforced, glass-ceramic veneering ceramic VITA LUMEX AC.
