Abstract: Optical impairments of teeth in the aesthetic zone constitute a problem for many patients. Modern dentistry offers a large variety of different treatment options for aesthetic challenges in the anterior dentition, such as tooth bleaching, direct composite restorations, ceramic veneers or all-ceramic crowns, depending on characteristics and severity of dental defects or tooth decay. This case report documents the preparation and restoration of an upper central incisor with a glass ceramic crown.

Clinical relevance: Successful anterior crowns need a precise fit and functional adaptation but also an excellent aesthetic integration into neighbouring dental structures.
