Introduction: The Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a relevant tool in prosthetic planning, allowing to predict modifications desired by the patient, guiding surgeries and contributing to the final treatment outcome. The ceramic veneers stand out for the ability to mimic the dental characteristics, presenting excellent longevity, color stability and minimal wear of tooth structure. Objectives: The objective of the present study was to present a clinical case with interdisciplinary procedures and planning with digital techniques to improve communication between dentist, patient and laboratory, allowing to predict treatment outcomes. Results: Facial and dental analysis techniques were applied to establish the planning of periodontal approach, selection of restorative material and the preparation to be performed. The treatment of the present oral rehabilitation was supported on a careful sequence of the execution protocol, mainly regarding the stages of aesthetic evaluation, in order to meet the expectations of the professional and patient in order to reach a successful result. Conclusion: The conclusion of the clinical case shows that the tools used to establish the diagnosis and planning together with careful protocol of the clinical stages allows obtaining excellent esthetics and restoration of oral health.
