All-ceramic crowns and veneers have been used extensively in prosthodontics with proven clinical success. The development of new reinforced ceramics has led to a broader range of indications. Traditional veneer preparations are now often replaced with extended defect-oriented preparation designs, ie, extended veneers. However , although extended veneers can serve as an alternative to full- crown preparations, they are not the best choice for all clinical situations. Choosing correctly between all-ceramic crowns and extended veneers when restoring the anterior dentition is crucial to achieving a conservative and long-lasting treatment. This article addresses key evidence-based considerations regarding the rehabilitation of the anterior dentition using all-ceramic crowns and veneers. Further , a case report involving both types of restorations is presented.

    The condylar path, the incisal path, and the cusp angle determine the amount of disocclusion during eccentric movement. In prosthodontics, the condylar path has been used as the main determinant of occlusion. However, the method to derive the incisal path and cusp angle from the condylar path is...
