Considering the need to improve dentogingival aesthetics, the scientific community has been improving surgical techniques and dental restorative materials, providing aesthetics, self-esteem, and quality of life to the patients. The present paper aimed to describe a clinical case of oral rehabilitation of anterior teeth using the In-Ceram Zirconia system. The patient was a 47-year-old, Caucasian female who sought dental care because she was not satisfied with her facial appearance and improper functioning. The treatment started with correction of the dentogingival asymmetry. Later, temporary crowns were cemented and finally, definitive porcelain metal-free crowns (In-Ceram zirconia system) were fixed. After the multidisciplinary execution of the procedures, positive results were noticed in the aesthetic, functional and psychosocial conditions of the patient. It may be noted that the integration between periodontal and prosthetic treatment is essential in clinical cases. It is also concluded that, when used properly, the In-Ceram Zirconia system allows achieving satisfactory results.
