Aim: To highlight the concept of prefabricated veneers and occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) and series of case report using edelweiss prefabricated veneer system.
Background: Edelweiss prefabricated veneer system presents a concept of biofunctional esthetics using laser sintered composite resins. The system`s biofunctionality and versatile area of application combined with its time and cost saving procedure make the edelweiss veneer and occlusion system a sound investment for the future.
Case description: A series of case reports treated using prefabricated laser sintered composite veneer system has been presented.
Conclusion: Prefabricated veneer is a milestone in operative dentistry, as it contributes tremendously to direct composite application, helping a larger number of our patients to receive esthetic restorations that are more conservative and affordable.
Clinical significance: The prefabricated composite veneering technique provides a minimally invasive, chair-side technique for esthetic and full mouth rehabilitation.
