OBJECTIVE: To illustrate a conservative approach to achieve the functional and aesthetic full-mouth rehabilitation of a patient with severe attrition.
METHODS: Healthy 61-year-old female complained about severe incisal wear. After clinical and radiographic examination a DSD was performed, from which we obtained a diagnostic wax-up. The wax-up was transferred to the mouth for the clinical evaluation of aesthetic parameters through photographs and videos, afterwards the treatment plan was performed which included:
The teeth´s surface and the intaglio surface of each veneer were prepared for bonding. The adhesive (Prime&Bond NT Dentsply DeTrey, Konstanz, Germany) was then applied on both surfaces and left uncured, after the previously selected resin cement (Calibra Translucent, Dentsply, Konstanz, Germany) was injected carefully into the veneers. Each restoration was positioned on the specific tooth, cement excesses were removed and the veneers were light-cured for 90 seconds.
CONCLUSION: With an accurate diagnosis, treatment plan and the use of the suitable materials it is possible to achieve excellent aesthetics and function while preserving maximum tooth structure.
