Dent Update. 2003 Oct;30(8):454-8, 460. doi: 10.12968/denu.2003.30.8.454.


Different laboratory techniques are available for making porcelain veneers, and each has its own advantages and limitations. This article describes how high-density alumina core constructed with Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology can be successfully used for making porcelain veneers. Different clinical conditions are also presented to illustrate the use of these bi-layer veneers.
