Recently, laminate, veneer restorations, are used as a more esthetic and conservative treatment solutions for esthetic problems, in the fixed Prosthodontics field. IPS-emax press Ceramic is one of the important esthetic materials. These are durable, conservative tooth preparation ranging from 3 to 5 mm, mainly in enamel and achieve patient satisfaction in comparison to crowns. This case report to present a patient treated by IPS-emax press ceramic laminate veneers restoration on his maxillary six anterior teeth, and describes in detail the patient selection, teeth preparations, procedures and cementation of veneers on maxillary six anterior teeth. It was found that Lithium disilicate Ceramic veneers are one of the most important ceramic materials used to manage of esthetic problems to enhance aesthetic and function of the anterior teeth. The patient was instructed about the importance of oral hygiene measures and periodic follow up for maintenance and longstanding restorations.
