There are many types and manufacturing procedures of ceramic, the choice of the best ceramic for a case must be guided by several parameters. In this article a 38-year female patient consults for an esthetically compromised smile due to discolored upper anterior teeth and she requests esthetic smile rehabilitation, the presence of defective restorations and recurrent caries excluded treatments modalities such as bleaching and veneers in favor of full ceramic crowns.
