Recent years have seen increasing demand for treatments aimed at improving dental esthetics. In this context, both patients and dentists prefer to preserve dental structures as far as possible; thanks to technological advances, especially in adhesive dentistry, new materials and minimally invasive techniques such as "no-prep" (no preparation) veneers have made this possible. Nevertheless, no-prep veneers have specific indications and suffer certain disadvantages. OBJECTIVES: This clinical case describes the rehabilitation of the upper anterior region by means of no-prep veneers, with BOPT (Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique) cervical margins...

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...

Several treatment options are described in the literature to solve the microdontia-related problems of maxillary anterior teeth. These options are often focused on an orthodontic rather than a restorative approach. The case presented here started with an orthodontic phase followed by a restorative one. The aim of the orthodontic phase was to achieve the correct spacing, respecting ideal average tooth proportions. This was done using a digital setup to restore the six anterior teeth, so that an optimal esthetic and functional result was achieved by the end of the orthodontic treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Therapeutic options for dental trauma depend on the injuries' features. For patients with uncomplicated tooth fractures, adhesive materials and composite partial veneers may be a therapeutic solution that completely preserves healthy tooth structure. CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS: An ultra-conservative approach, using indirect composite partial veneers to restore fractured anterior teeth is described in these case reports. CONCLUSION: Despite the position of the finish line in the middle of the clinical crown, this solution offers functional and esthetic outcomes using an indirect composite technique, and appears to be a suitable alternative to direct composite restorations or less conservative indirect veneers...

Rehabilitation of patients with anterior conoid teeth may present a challenge for the clinician, especially when trying to mimic the nature with composite resins. This clinical report exemplifies how a patient with conoid upper lateral incisors was rehabilitated with minimally invasive adhesive restorations. Following diagnostic wax-up and cosmetic mock-up, no-prep veneers and ceramic fragments (partial veneers) were constructed with feldspathic porcelain. This restorative material presents excellent reproduction of the optical properties of the dental structure, especially at minimal thicknesses...

Bonded porcelain restorations are a predictable and durable treatment option that can restore not only the strength and function of the teeth but also the esthetic appearance. One important issue in adhesive dentistry is the preservation of sound enamel. Following biomimetic principles, employing minimally invasive applications and adhesive technologies is of paramount importance for successful restorations. While it is widely accepted that minimally invasive restorative techniques should be favored, there is still some controversy over the noninvasive approaches...

In a historical pendulum of porcelain veneer preparation concepts, an oversimplified version of the so-called "no prep" approaches has resurfaced. A case from the USC student clinics is presented, which could be easily considered by many as a "no prep" veneer case. Moderate tooth preparations guided by natural morphology were used instead with a great benefit on the final outcome. While it is widely accepted that minimally invasive restorative approaches should be favored, a certain controversy exists regarding strictly noninvasive approaches...

"No-prep" porcelain veneers have been effectively in use for more than two decades, and the bonding of porcelain to 100% enamel has enjoyed extraordinary success. Today's refined techniques, new and improved materials, and better training in emulating nature have enabled additive-only veneers to rival, or in some cases even exceed, the results of traditionally prepared veneers. In this case presentation, the author uses conservative, additive-only dentistry to enhance a young woman's smile by creating improved anterior esthetics...

Delayed replantation of an avulsed tooth may result in rapid root resorption or, more frequently, dental ankylosis with subsequent bone substitution. If this process develop slowly, it is possible to observe that tooth loss is characterized by a well conserved alveolus with regard to bone preservation, particularly in vertical dimension. This clinical case reports a dental trauma of a central incisor in a young boy characterized by tooth avulsion and its delayed replantation. After 10 years, dental ankylosis of the incisor was recorded and the patient underwent a prosthetic-orthodontic rehabilitation using CAD-CAM technology and no-prep veneers...
