Aslan, Yılmaz Umut / Uludamar, Altay / Özkan, Yasemin
Purpose: To report on the 10-year clinical treatment outcomes for a strictly applied clinical protocol for pressable lithium disilicate glass-ceramic laminate veneers (LDLVs) placed by two experienced dentists.
Materials and Methods: A 10-year follow-up assessment of 364 LDLVs placed in 41 patients was undertaken with the clinical criteria color/esthetic match of the porcelain surface, chipping and fracture occurrence, marginal discoloration, and integrity, assessed using the modified United States Public Health Service scoring system.
Results: After 10 years, the survival rate was 97.4%. Complications occurred in 1.64% of the restorations (fractures and debonding in 0.55% and 1.09%, respectively).
Conclusion: A strict, repeatable protocol for placing veneers with experienced dentists yielded good results.
