Porcelain Repair

Before and after: click to magnify



"Porcelain" restorations like veneers crowns and bridges can fracture. The fracture can be partial thickness, or fully through to reveal the underlying tooth (or metal-work). The clinician needs to decide whether repair is indicated: often a complete replacement is better.

Some clinicians enjoy the convenience of ready made kits: Ultradent provide a Porcelain Repair Kit - see //www.ultradent.com/products/instructions/porc_repair.pdf
