Feldspathic Porcelain Veneers

Feldspathic Porcelain Veneers and Crowns provide the most esthetic cosmetic solution at Killian. An ideal option for patients with chipped, discolored, or crocked teeth, they are fabricated utilizing a fully hand layered technique. Each layer is placed with varying levels of opacity, translucency, brightness, and color, in order to design a perfect copy of nature in a thin veneer, a full coverage crown or to create an entirely new smile make-over.

Provide a shallow chamfer margin at the gingival and proximal. The prep depth should be 0.75 - 1.0 mm to provide space to block-out tooth color that is too dark or too light. If the stump shade (prep) matches the desired restoration color, then only 0.5 mm reduction is needed. For diastema closure, increased proximal preparation through the proximal and toward the lingual allows for proper transitional contour through the proximal while facial reparation alone does not permit proper transitional contour through the proximal area. “No prep” veneers are available on a pre-approved, case by case basis, provide models for consultation. No prep “window” veneers are also available for filling smaller areas of missing contours in enamel.
