Abstract Ninety-one subjects with a total of 196 esthetic veneer crowns with visible gingival margins were surveyed. An esthetic analysis of crown margins showing with a normal smile and an exaggerated smile was performed and recorded. Patient satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the esthetic veneer crowns was assessed. The conclusions of this study support the results reported in the first three parts of this study, indicate that satisfactory results can be obtained on many individuals when the crown margins of esthetic veneer crowns are placed supragingivally, and support the philosophy that individual patient education and analysis are essential to the selection of optimum margin placement when esthetic veneer crowns are the treatment of choice.
