The article focuses on the restoration of the anterior teeth. The functional roles of the anterior teeth are incision of food, esthetics, phonetics and support of soft tissues. The major advantage of the restoration is prevention of possible pulp involvement, conservation of tooth structure and minimal alteration of tooth form. Anterior teeth are brought to a position where forces are directed along the long axis of the teeth. The maxillary abutment teeth are prepared, and the lingual surface of the restoration is adjusted to simulate a platform which will give guidance and support.
