An ideal aesthetic treatment plan should be minimally invasive, preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. The ceramic veneers have achieved great success since their introduction nearly three decades ago as they fulfil the above criteria very well. Continuous evolution of materials, laboratory techniques and clinical procedures have made the ceramic laminate veneers a reliable modern technique. Veneers are mainly fabricated from conventional low fusing feldspathic porcelain. Two popular methods for fabrication of porcelain veneers are the platinum foil technique and the refractory die technique. However these are time consuming and technique sensitive. In contrast, the CAD/CAM restorations can be made in one visit and the new equipment and soft wares have been shown to result in improved marginal fit. The use of CAD/CAM nowadays is a useful tool that also allows for digital impression taking, digital design as part of the treatment planning, and the elaboration of monolithic restorations for ceramic materials, used most recently in the field of ceramic veneers. This scientific paper reviews the various clinical and laboratory considerations for CAD CAM ceramic veneers highlighted with case reports for better understanding of the subject. A systematic review was conducted online using PRISMA and designated databases.
