Among the ceramic materials used in dentistry, Zirconia presents the ideal opacity for cases where the clinical challenge is to neutralize the difference in the colors of the substrates. The "ceramic steel", so called by some authors, guarantees to Zirconia resistance and hardness similar to a metal, but with aesthetic advantages superior to the metal-ceramic restorations, which can exhibit exposure of the metal band over time. This article describes a complex rehabilitation treatment involving dental elements with different substrates: 11 - vital tooth with large crown damage; 21 - endodontically treated tooth and cast metal core; 22 - Morse taper implant. The selection of a completely zirconia-based ceramic system allowed masking the different conditions of substrates, so achieving the esthetic expectations. Moreover, considering the patient's high smile line, excellent gingival esthetics was obtained with an internal connection Morse taper implant associated with an individualized anatomic abutment.
