OBJECTIVES: No-prep veneers, although ideally considered the best option because of tooth structure maximum preservation, have been frequently criticized for some potential limitations including esthetic outcomes and periodontal complications. CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS: A new protocol to optimize no-prep veneers restorations is presented. A key point of the proposed technique is to identify optimal margins' positions: margin is positioned in the point of maximum convexity of teeth, avoiding the over contouring of traditional no-prep veneers. CONCLUSION: The procedure can be appreciated for the marginal accuracy and the resulting aesthetic stability. The case reports show that properly managed no-prep veneers can have biologically healthy and aesthetically pleasant tooth-restoration transitions and emergence profiles. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: High-quality no-prep veneers can be more challenging to realize than conventional veneers and the success seems to depend on a combination of good case selection, margins' position, sound adhesive principles, clinical, and laboratory experience.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: No-prep veneers, although ideally considered the best option because of tooth structure maximum preservation, have been frequently criticized for some potential limitations including esthetic outcomes and periodontal complications. CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS: A new protocol to optimize no-prep veneers restorations is presented. A key point of the proposed technique is to identify optimal margins' positions: margin is positioned in the point of maximum convexity of teeth, avoiding the over contouring of traditional no-prep veneers. CONCLUSION: The procedure can be appreciated for the marginal accuracy and the resulting aesthetic stability. The case reports show that properly managed no-prep veneers can have biologically healthy and aesthetically pleasant tooth-restoration transitions and emergence profiles. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: High-quality no-prep veneers can be more challenging to realize than conventional veneers and the success seems to depend on a combination of good case selection, margins' position, sound adhesive principles, clinical, and laboratory experience.
