Rogerio MARCONDES, Tiago VERAS, Cristiano SOARES, Marco Aurélio de CARVALHO

This case report aims to present and discuss the esthetic smile enhancement with feldspathic ceramic veneers, bonded with thermomodified resin to mockup guided preparations, under humidity control with rubber dam isolation. After clinical, photographic and model evaluation, the treatment planning consisted of smile aesthetic improvement with laminate veneers, aiming the more biomimetic approach. After wax-up, guides were obtained for the mockup and tooth preparations. After impression, the laminate feldspathic veneers were made using the refractory die technique, followed by dry and wet intraoral try-in. Rubber dam isolation of the operative field for predictable restoration luting with thermomodified resin was followed by finishing or margins. The patient expectation was fulfilled through correct diagnosis, planning, try-in (mockup) and optimized bonding of biomimetic feldspathic laminate veneers.
