Veneer chipping: Is one fabrication process better than another?

By Rob Goszkowski, Assistant Editor of Dr. Bicuspid

May 16, 2011 — Joining CAD/CAM fabricated veneers to CAD/CAM fabricated zirconia frameworks can reduce veneer chipping frequency and speed the fabrication process. Researchers at Ivoclar Vivadent evaluated the fatigue behavior of two different systems during cyclic/static loading and found that the IPS e.max CAD-on fabrication technique with lithium disilicate is more reliable for fabricating CAD/CAM veneered restorations than Vita‘s Rapid Layer Technology.
