Abstract

The management of patients with severely worn dentition is challenging due to the loss of occlusal vertical dimension and tooth structure creating an uneven plane of occlusion. This case report describes the importance of every step of the conventional and improvised methods in treating tooth wear patients. Stages from the initial work-up of tooth wear assessment, substantial surgical crown lengthening, the controlled method of increasing vertical dimension, the precise method of crown preparations, advanced impression techniques till the cementation procedure of final restorations.
The whole treatment was in a reorganized approach such that the new inter-cuspal position (ICP) coincided with the retruded axial position (RAP). When restoring worn dentition, clinician should always have a proper planning, decent implementation for each stages thus guarantee excellent performances. However maintenance and recall visits are the main keys to long term success.
