All-ceramic crowns and veneers have been used extensively in prosthodontics with proven clinical success. The development of new reinforced ceramics has led to a broader range of indications. Traditional veneer preparations are now often replaced with extended defect-oriented preparation designs, ie, extended veneers. However, although extended veneers can serve as an alternative to full-crown preparations, they are not the best choice for all clinical situations. Choosing correctly between all-ceramic crowns and extended veneers when restoring the anterior dentition is crucial to achieving a conservative and long-lasting treatment. This article addresses key evidence-based considerations regarding the rehabilitation of the anterior dentition using all-ceramic crowns and veneers. Further, a case report involving both types of restorations is presented. (Am J Esthet Dent 2011;1:60–81.)
