      I have a case consisted of fourteen veneers, eight uppers and six lower. The patient insisted on 3D OM1 shade because he wants a very white smile . The doc prepped the uppers and the Lowers and the stump shade is A3 with no discoloration . I am thinking of using the MT range, I am concerned of greying veneers if HT is used. Your feedback is appreciated.

      It's hard to beat the esthetics of those MT pellets. They just look so much more natural than the LT's. If there is sufficient reduction, I would be inclined to use them.

      MT won't work for 0M1. They would end up not bright enough, especially with A3 stumpf shade

      Do you have any of the OE2 Ingots ?. If you have 1mm thickness with the interproximals prepped I would go with Multi ingots . Multi ingots have saved my day a few times .Multi BL2 not layered tend to be a bit bright, it would work

      The thickness is .5mm on facial and slightly thicker on prepped interproximals

      Tough case , I would go LT and if you have to layer anything I would go with the power incisals, maybe mix some dentin in it and segment it.. before the power inc came out ,I would have mixed regular inc with 0E4 adjusting the ratio depending on the need . Whatever you do make sure your contours are really well defined with the incisal edges thinned out . The better the contours the better the shades, but you already knew that
