Rehabilitation of Erosive Tooth Surface Loss in a Patient Diagnosed with Bruxism, Utilizing CAD/CAM Technology and a Monolithic Multi-layered Zirconia

The etiology of tooth surface loss (TSL) is a multifactorial phenomenon that affects many individuals seeking
rehabilitative dental treatment. Patients often present with parafunctional habits, such as bruxism, coupled with intrinsic variables such as highly abrasive antagonistic restorations. Pathological TSL has the potential to negatively impact a patient’s quality of life in regards to both function and aesthetics. The integration of CAD/CAM digital technology and the utilization of full-contoured anatomical zirconia crowns as a part of the comprehensive treatment plan for these patients allows for the delivery of predictable, minimally invasive all-ceramic restorations with a favorable long-term prognosis.
