This case report emphasizes on esthetic rehabilitation of maxillary anterior teeth with porcelain laminate veneers. A male patient aged 24 years reported with a chief complaint of spacing between teeth in the upper front teeth region. The patient was unwilling for orthodontic correction since time was the major constraint. A complete intraoral and extraoral examination was performed, preoperative photographs were taken, and study models were prepared. Tooth component, i. e., dental midline, incisal lengths, tooth dimensions, zenith points, axial inclinations, interdental contact area and point, incisal embrasure, symmetry, and balance, was observed. The soft-tissue examination included gingival health, interdental embrasure, and smile line. Clinical examination revealed diastema between 11, 12, 21, and 22. Discoloration was noted in 21 teeth, and the patient reported a history of root canal treatment for the same. Considering the esthetic need of the patient and the duration of treatment, porcelain veneers were planned for the correction of diastema. Tooth preparation for veneers was made with incisal overlap design with respect to 12, 11, and 22, and e-max crown was planned for 21. The advantages of this treatment include quick results, minimal tooth structure removal, long-term solution, better esthetics, and firm fit.
