In this work, mechanical properties of dental porcelain veneers on NiCrMo substrates were experimentally and numerically investigated using an indentation technique. The indentation technique was applied to porcelain veneers using a diamond indenter. The NiCrMo substrate and ceramic veneers were assumed to be homogeneous, isotropic and infinite bodies. The indentation test performed with a Vickers indenter was simulated by three dimensional finite element analyses. The experimental and numerical results are presented.
