Aesthetic Anteriors

Vibrant™ Porcelain Veneers from 1.5 to 2.5 with a LAVA™ cantilever bridge 2.3-2.2

The clinician chose Vibrant™ Porcelain Veneers because of their beautiful translucency. These veneers are fabricated by layering porcelain on a refractory die enabling a three-dimensional build-up. For the bridge, a LAVA™ zirconia substructure was used for its high stability, precise fit, and excellent aesthetics matching the veneers.
