Crown fractures as a part of traumatic injuries are common among schoolchildren. They create serious functional, esthetic and psychological problems. The clinicians must deal with sometimes small patient’s age, need of high esthetics in the front part and the choice of exact treatment plan. Repeated reconstructions are needed in many cases because of compromised results as time passed by. Achievement of promising restoration that preserves its esthetics and strength is the greatest desire for both children and their parents.
In this review are collected data for the usage of laminate veneers for restoring fractured incisors in schoolchildren. 
A critical analysis of proposed from different authors improvements and objections has been made. These methods summarize succession in the right therapeutic approach.

Key words: veneers, crown fractures, permanent teeth.
