Abstract

The progressive attrition of teeth is a normal process by aging. However, excessive tooth wear with decreased vertical dimension of occlusion and collapse of occlusal plane may cause pathologic pulpal condition, occlusal disharmony and functional disorders. In this case, a patient with severely worn dentition was treated. Diagnostic wax-up was performed at the increased vertical dimension. After evaluation of provisional restorations for 12 weeks, final restorations were fabricated with zirconia crown and routine clinical assessments were made. Esthetically and functionally satisfactory results were obtained.
