The use of ceramic veneers to restore crowded teeth in the maxilla has been widely discussed in the literature. However, the use of this technique in the mandible has received little attention. Therefore, this case report describes the treatment of crowded mandibular anterior teeth using ceramic veneers. The primary treatment challenge in this region is the reduced tooth structure available for rehabilitation. Proper communication between the clinician and dental technician is required to achieve clinical success. This article presents a straightforward treatment plan and restorative technique that includes both the clinical and laboratory sequences necessary for predictable and stable postoperative outcomes.
