Abstract

Desire to possess a beautiful smile has always existed with the human race. In 1903, Land described the procedure of making porcelain crowns. He has noticed that the crowns would break too easily. Thirty five years later, in 1938 Pincus described the concept of ceramic veneer but he too noted lack of strength of porcelains.
