Etched porcelain veneer technology has demonstrated long-term clinical success. It has proved to be one of the most successful modalities of treatment that modern dentistry has to offer. The relatively few difficulties that have been encountered may be circumvented or eliminated if the practitioner pays close attention to detail. Development of new products and materials is expected to bring longer term success. Modern-day restorations offer great promise for the expanded use of the etched porcelain/resinbonded system for inlays, onlays, crowns, and simple bridges if the ability of bonding to dentin is respected and further researched. Evidence based principals need to determined and followed, like what has been done with porcelain veneer bonding to enamel.
