Recently, with rapid evolution in dental adhesive technology, less invasive approaches have been reported in contemporary restorative dentistry. New restorative materials such as onlay, inlay, and other indirect partial coverage restorations of teeth, retained by microretention through adhesives rather than macro-retention are increasingly accepted by dentists. Conventional crowns sacrifice amounts of residual sound hard tissues. Partial coverage restorations in the posteriors fulfill esthetic requirements while adhering to bioeconomic principles resulting in biomechanical strengthening of the remaining tooth structure. Veneerlays would be an excellent restoration option rather than using a full coverage restoration in many cases as it involves only the buccal and occlusal surfaces. This is a case report describing an indirect restoration for preparation using morphology-driven preparation technique (MDPT) principles and bonding of a veneerlay, which brings an esthetic and functional alternative to restoring the maxillary premolar teeth. Follow-up of the case has shown a successful outcome.
