Esthetic dental treatment requires preservation of the tooth structures and use of appropriate restorative materials. The use of ceramic restorations is well established for long-term enamel rehabilitation or to restore shape, texture, luster, and color to anterior teeth. Innovative restorative techniques based on adhesive bonding and the latest ceramic materials have been employed. This case report describes the treatment and 2-year follow-up of a young patient using two partial ceramic restorations. The step-by-step treatment procedures are presented, from the clinical diagnosis to the photographic protocol, wax-up, conservative preparations, impression taking, and cementation. Partial ceramic restorations in anterior teeth were shown to be a successful treatment option in the rehabilitation of young patients, even if the finishing line of the preparation is clearly visible.
