Darkened anterior teeth compromise smile aesthetics, so rehabilitating them aesthetically and functionally has become one of the biggest clinical challenges for the dental surgeon. The development of adhesive dentistry, associated with the ability of dental ceramics to condition, guaranteeing the high quality of the bonding of these materials to the dental tissues, has made the treatment with ceramic laminates have high satisfaction rates, not only due to the natural optical characteristics initially achieved, but mainly by maintaining the effect obtained over the years. Objectives: The present study aims to compare the aesthetic result between two facets, with different vitreous ceramics, through a clinical case report of a trauma 21 darkened tooth rehabilitation. Methodology: A single darkening upper central incisor was prepared to receive a ceramic laminate. During the laboratory phase, two laminates were made of different materials, one in feldspar ceramic, and the second with a lithium disilicate base and feldspar ceramic covering it. Both pieces were tested and the one with the most naturalness was cemented. Results: Both pieces presented satisfactory results during the tests. Together with the patient, the lithium disilicate part was selected for cementation. Conclusions: The two techniques presented can generate aesthetically satisfactory results, using quality preparation, impressions and dental laboratories
