In recent years, laminate veneer restorations have been used in dentistry as a more conservative and esthetic treatment option. Lithium disilicate ceramic material yields most thin veneers and has better properties compared to other materials. These two case reports aim to describe the complete clinical procedure, from treatment planning to lithium disilicate ceramic veneer cementation. Patients were informed about the treatment plan. Tooth preparation was done using porcelain veneer preparation burs (Pivo, Korea) and was limited to enamel in both the cases. Veneers were etched with 9.5% hydrofluoric acid, followed by the application of a silane coupling agent. Teeth were etched using 37% phosphoric acid, and then bonding agent was applied. Dual-cure resin cement was used for cementation of veneer to the tooth structure. A layer of oxygen barrier was also applied just before light curing the resin cement. Lithium disilicate ceramic veneers are minimally invasive as these require very less tooth reduction. These veneers have esthetically promising results due to their properties similar to that of enamel.
