There has been an increase in the use of esthetic metal-free ceramic crowns in restoring endodontically treated teeth or teeth with severe coronal destruction. Tooth-colored dowels and cores are used to enhance the esthetic result. This report describes the treatment of a patient with bilateral maxillary supernumerary lateral incisors, a severe malocclusion, and maxillary anterior tooth discoloration. Treatment included heat-pressed, metal-free ceramic crowns supported by zirconia ceramic dowel-and-core foundations.
