Objectives: Based on a maxillary premolar restored with laminate veneer and using the 3-D finite element analysis (FEA) and mu CT data, the aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of different types of buccal cusp reduction on the stress distribution in the porcelain laminate veneer and in the resin luting cement layer. Methods: Two 3-D FEA models (M) of a maxillary premolar were built from mCT data. The buccal cusp reduction followed two configurations: Mt - buccal cusp completely covered by porcelain laminate veneer; and Mp - buccal cusp partially covered by porcelain laminate veneer. The loading (150 N in 45 degrees) was performed on the top of the buccal cusp. The finite element software (Ansys Workbench 10.0) was used to obtain the maximum shear stress (tau(max)) and maximum principal stress (sigma(max)). Results: The Mp showed reduced the stress (smax) in porcelain laminate veneer (from -2.3 to 24.5 MPa) in comparison with Mt (from -5.3 to 27.4 MPa). The difference between the peak and lower stress values of smax in Mp (-6.8 to 26.7 MPa) and Mt (-5.3 to 27.4 MPa) was similar for the resin luting cement layer. The structures not exceeded the ultimate tensile strength or the shear bond strength. Conclusions: Cusp reduction did not affect significant increase in smax and tmax. The Mt showed better stress distribution (tmax) than Mp. (C) 2011 Published by Elsevier Ireland on behalf of Japan Prosthodontic Society. Open access under CC BY-NC-ND license. (AU)
