Ceramic laminate veneers are a predictable treatment option for esthetic anterior restorations. When bonded to enamel, ceramic veneers offer stable long-term results. By using current laboratory techniques associated with a strict clinical protocol, very thin veneers can be provided with minimal loss of hard tissue. This article presents a novel treatment technique—the ultimate ceramic veneer— in which tooth preparation is laboratory guided and performed after final impression taking. Based on the wax-up and mock-up, the ceramist prepares the die only where there is no space for the ceramic. Thus, the final result is based on a conservative approach that creates minimally invasive restorations. Am J Esthet Dent 2013; 3:8–22. doi: 10.11607/ajed.0054
