The use of indirect composite veneers to rehabilitate patients with dental erosion: a case report
Asensio Acevedo, Ramón / Suarez-Feito, José Maria / Suárez Tuero, Carlota / Jané, Luis / Roig, Miguel
The evolution of restorative dental materials has led to the development of more direct or indirect conservative techniques to solve both functional and esthetic problems in anterior and posterior teeth. Several authors have concluded that indirect restorations are the technique of choice in complex cases where shape and colour are difficult to achieve and function has to be restored. Even though there is no clinical evidence of the appropriateness of indirect composites in these treatments, the latest generation of composites used indirectly in the anterior teeth exhibits some interesting characteristics: it supports mechanical stress adequately, has an excellent esthetic result and can be repaired intraorally.
