One of the key tools to control the presence of a visible gingival margin in anterior regions may be the utilization of the biologically oriented preparation technique, helping to enhance the quality of periodontal tissues and extending their stability over time. Currently, there is a wide array of materials that allow highly esthetic and predictable replacement of the lost tooth structure. These materials without metallic nucleus include the lithium disilicate or zircon oxide-reinforced crowns, which present promising esthetic outcomes and high resistance to fracture, besides the possibility of adhesive bonding to the tooth, substantially enhancing the long-term success of indirect restorations.
