Porcelain has been used with prosthetic restorations for many years. Although their long term success has been demonstrated, failures may occur in metal-porcelain restorations due to trauma, laboratory failures or premature contacts. Damaged porcelain restorations can cause serious clinical and esthetic problems. In some situations, the production of a new restoration is difficult because of the high treatment costs. Porcelain repair may provide a practical alternative for patients and clinicians, especially those restorations with minor porcelain cracks. In the present series of case reports, repair of the fractured metal-porcelain restorations, using porcelain repair system and composite resin were demonstrated.
