Full-mouth rehabilitation of a severe tooth wear case: a digital, esthetic and functional approach
Saratti, Carlo Massimo / Merheb, Carl / Franchini, Leonardo / Rocca, Giovanni Tommaso / Krejci, Ivo
The proliferation of digital technology is progressively changing dentistry. Thanks to continual improvements in CAD/CAM devices and dental materials, it is possible nowadays to carry out a treatment plan for oral rehabilitations with fully digital approaches and noninvasive concepts. The availability of digital resources allows clinicians to increase the predictability of enhanced esthetics and good functional results. There is an increasing number of patients today who are affected by excessive tooth wear and may benefit from these kinds of treatments. This article provides a step-by-step documentation of a full-mouth rehabilitation performed with a digital approach and additive CAD/CAM composite resin restorations. An innovative functional evaluation is also documented and discussed. The initial situation was assessed and compared with the rehabilitation project through a snap-on device. After the intraoral adjustment and validation, the final rehabilitation was performed according to the information obtained in the provisional phase and digitally transmitted to the laboratory.
