Multiple options are available to treat the problems arising in the zone of high esthetic sensitivity. Every treatment modality offers some advantages and disadvantages. The use of porcelain laminate veneers to solve esthetic and/or functional problems has been shown to be a valid management option especially in the anterior esthetic zone.
