Fracture of the porcelain or aesthetic veneer material: thoughts?

Much of the interest in implant dentistry is focused on getting the implants in. But there are problems in the mature restorations, that I’d like to get opinions on. Specifically, the most common complication for implant crowns and bridges is fracture of the porcelain or aesthetic veneer material. Do you do anything special to avoid this like giving the patient a soft nightguard? What do you explain to your patient when this happens? Canine guidance is one approach to help reduce this. Do you recommend any particular occlusal scheme to minimize these kinds of fractures?
