Introduction: The clinical success of restorations depends on technical aspects, aesthetic result and performance in time. The aim of this study was to evaluation of efficiency of composite veneers vs porcelain veneers.
Materials and Methods: One hundred and eighty VRs of three different types (direct composite, indirect composite and porcelain) were placed on anterior teeth. Patients were asked to fill in questionnaires at baseline and at one- and two-year recalls.
Results: At baseline the overall satisfaction was 76%, after two years this was 78%. The variable ‘type of VR’ was the only factor measured that had a significant in8uence on the satisfaction of the patient. At the two-year evaluation patients with porcelain VRs were more satisfied than those with direct composite VRs (P<0.05).
Conclusions: From the results of this study it is concluded that differences in clinical procedures had no effect on satisfaction. Also the number of VRs had not influenced the level of satisfaction. After two years a significant difference was observed for the variable ‘type of VR’, with the best results for porcelain.
