 This article describes a case of discolored central incisors which is compromising aesthetics. A 25 year old female patient presented to the Fixed Prosthodontics Department. She was looking for an improvement of her smile and she was worried about the impaired aesthetic appearance caused by affected teeth. She gave the history of an orthodontic treatment 7 years back. A comprehensive examination revealed that central incisors were necrotic as a complication of orthodontic treatment. The treatment plan included an endodontic treatment followed by prosthetic therapy consisting on a Zirconia based crown restoring the altered properties of the endodontically treated incisors, both aesthetic and mechanical. Internal bleaching technique was rejected because of time consuming procedure. Thanks to a well-planned approach the result was esthetically acceptable and the patient was satisfied.
