Esthetic dentistry is a combination of measurable dimensions and artistic sensitivity. Complete rehabilitation of smile of a patient with multiple esthetic challenges involves a multidisciplinary approach and presents a considerable clinical challenge. The interactions between new restorative materials and techniques allow the reproduction of dental structures, restoring form and function in such a way that restorative procedures become imperceptible. Porcelain laminate veneer has become one of the most predictable, most esthetic, and least invasive modalities of treatment. This case report describes a methodical procedure of successful esthetic rehabilitation of anterior hypoplastic teeth using a multidisciplinary approach recreating an esthetically and functionally acceptable dentition. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • Hypoplastic teeth present a serious challenge in esthetic dentistry due to reduced amount of enamel.
  • Interdisciplinary approach results in the improvement of the esthetic and functional aspects as well as quality-of-life were observed.
