NOTE: If patient has dark stains, such as tetracycline stains, we recommend the new BLOCK-OUT opaque system by Ultra-Bond.

NOTE: Ultra-Bond will self-cure in approximately 22 minutes.
After placing, remove excess Ultra-Bond with a soft brush coated with Tenure S or with Dab-Eze sponges.
Clean up any leftover Ultra-Bond resin cement using bur G (or D).
Use DenMat’s schure 349 instrument to remove the cured cement along the margins, as well as from the interproximal area along both the facial and the lingual. You may also use bur G. This bur is an excellent tool for cleaning up residual resin cement and also great for finishing composites.
Use bur B to remove the porcelain ledge.
Trim/polish the margins of the porcelain veneer.
Using the interproximal fine diamond bur F, known as the ‘mosquito’ diamond, refine the margins along the interproximal area.
Check the bite with articulating paper. Use bur E, the American football-shaped bur, on the lingual to finish the incisal wrap and adjust high spots or length.
Place a wooden wedge interproximally (optional)
Use the CeriSander (ultra-fine grit) to further smooth the interproximal surfaces. It is important that you use each sanding blade only two or three times to open contacts.
Check the interproximal surfaces with dental floss for smoothness.
