Ceramics have greatly evolved since they came into the eye of the dental community. Currently, there is a demand for a highly aesthetic as well as strong restoration and high translucent zirconia fits that criteria pretty well. This has significantly increased the applicability of zirconia as a restorative material in aesthetically demanding cases. Veneers have an innate disadvantage of lack of strength, decreased fracture resistance and chipping. Using these highly translucent zirconia veneers will help overcome these disadvantages. Therefore, the objective of the case series was to test the effectiveness of adhesively bonded highly translucent zirconia veneers using resin cement. This type of veneers provides satisfactory aesthetic outcomes and decreases the risk of fracturing during the trial and clinical use. However, further studies with long-term follow-ups are needed.
