Abstract

Generalized severely worn dentition causes occlusal disharmony, esthetic problems, and temporomandibular joint disorders. In order to solve these problems, it is necessary to make a precise analysis of vertical dimension and treatment plans considering it. This case report demonstrates the complete mouth rehabilitation of a 58-year-old male patient with a lot of worn teeth by increasing vertical dimension. Provisional restorations were cemented and after 4 months of evaluation for patient's compliance, permanent prostheses were fabricated. With these treatments, functionally and esthetically satisfactory results were obtained.
