Ceramic laminate veneers have been widely used in esthetic restorations, with advantages such as color stability, resistance to degradation, and excellent esthetic results, all of which contribute to long-term stability. The gold standard technique consists of bonding a thin ceramic laminate veneer to enamel. The present paper describes a clinical case with 3-year follow-up. Six ceramic laminate veneers were planned, fabricated and bonded to six sound anterior maxillary teeth showing diastema, thereby improving shape and size. The procedure followed a laminate veneer treatment protocol, using a mock-up, shade selection, and an adhesive system. The case was followed for 3 years. In conclusion, minimally invasive restorations with ceramic laminate veneers remained stable after 3 years of follow-up and are a good option for patients with diastema or microdontia and requires only a minimum amount of sound tooth tissue removal.
