Objectives: To determine the fatigue resistance of occlusal veneers and whether it can be a successful mean of restoring erosive or attrite posterior teeth. Methods: Search was made in 2 databases including PubMed and LILACS, the terms “occlusal veneers”, “table tops”, “overlays”, “non retentive all ceramic full coverage restorations”, “fatigue resistance”, “masticatory fatigue”, “stresses”, “fatigue failure” and “fracture strength” were used, title and abstract were screened; giving the exclusion and inclusion standards articles which did not follow the inclusion standards were excluded. Incorporated papers are then read thoroughly for a second stage filter, this was followed by manual searching. Findings: The search resulted in 6 included papers, 3 papers regarding the fatigue resistance of occlusal veneers made of composite and glass ceramic blocks, 1 paper measuring the fatigue resistance of occlusal veneers made of two different glass ceramics, 1 paper comparing occlusal veneers made of resin nano-ceramic with those made of composite blocks and 1 paper simulating five years of clinical service on occlusal veneers made of one type of glass ceramic. From the included studies occlusal veneers were found to be a successful mean of restoring erosive or attrite posterior teeth regarding fatigue resistance.
