Summary The microleakage beneath porcelain laminate veneers was investigated. The restoration margins were located according to the preparations made below or above CEJ of extracted maxillary central incisors. Vitadur N and Microbond porcelain materials were used to prepare laminate veneers. A light cured composite resin (Porcelite®) and a light‐ and chemical‐cured composite resin (Porcelite Dual Cure®) were used as luting agents. The bonded specimens were thermocycled and by employing the standard dye penetration technique, the leakage was scored from cervical and incisal margins. Significantly greater microleakage was recorded at the dentine composite resin interfaces than at the enamel/composite interfaces. Statistically insignificant differences were observed with the use of the four cement/porcelain combinations studied. Copyright © 1992, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
