Full-mouth adhesive rehabilitation in case of severe dental erosion, a minimally invasive approach following the 3-step technique
Grütter, Linda / Vailati, Francesca
A full-mouth adhesive rehabilitation in case of severe dental erosion may present a challenge for both the clinician and the laboratory technician, not only for the multiple teeth to be restored, but also for their time schedule, difficult to be included in a busy agenda of a private practice. Thanks to the simplicity of the 3-step technique, full-mouth rehabilitations become easier to handle. In this article the treatment of a very compromised case of dental erosion (ACE class V) is illustrated, implementing only adhesive techniques. The very pleasing clinical outcome was the result of the esthetic, mechanic and most of all biological success achieved, confirming that minimally invasive dentistry should always be the driving motor of any rehabilitation, especially in patients who have already suffered from conspicuous tooth destruction.
