Because of their predictable results and conservation of tooth structure, ceramic veneers are indicated for the esthetic treatment of anterior teeth with anomalous positions or appearance. The objective of this case report is to highlight the steps in dental rehabilitation using ceramic veneers reinforced by lithium disilicate. In this case the patient had diastemas between the mandibular incisors. After preliminary procedures, diagnostic models, waxing, and mock-up were completed, an impression was made with addition silicone, and the veneers were fabricated and cemented with light-cure cement. As a result, the esthetics and function expected by the patient were achieved. The use of ceramic veneers enabled a conservative and esthetically successful rehabilitation treatment.
