Abstract

Previously, the usage of monolithic zirconia in anterior restoration was limited because of problems such as the monotony of tones and shades which would compromise the outcome of esthetic purpose. Zirconia was merely used as a coping with additional porcelain veneering whereas porcelain chipping cannot be evaded. Recently, with the improvement of monolithic zirconia, the various translucency and tones made it possible to use zirconia for anterior restoration. In this case, a male patient of 63 years old received a full mouth rehabilitation with monolithic zirconia. After a period of time usage, the outcome showed a favorable result functionally and esthetically.
