Due to clenching and grinding, her teeth had significantly abraded and shortened, causing serious aesthetic problems.
Patient requested to improve the appearance of her mouth.
Case was assessed as high-risk and of high-demands as there was peril of porcelain fractures and potential issues with the temporomandibular joints.
Careful raise of vertical dimension was initially performed using bonded resins (mock-up) to help gain prosthetic space without drilling teeth.
At second phase long-term temporary restorations replaced bonded mock up.
Partial coverage restorations as well as full coverage veneers were chosen as treatment plan dictated.
Teeth were not drilled and state-of-the-art porcelain restorations were bonded using a strict protocol (use of dental isolation).
Monolithic emax restorations were used with micro-layering to provide both strength and aesthetics.
