Today’s dental patients are demanding a youthful, attractive smile. The esthetic rehabilitation of patients with functionally compromised dentitions frequently involves a multidisciplinary approach. The realization of esthetic objectives in multidisciplinary cases represents a considerable clinical challenge. To a great extent, proper case selection and careful multidisciplinary treatment planning can govern the predictability of procedures. A team approach that includes the clinicians, the laboratory technician, and the patient is essential to achieve the desired results. This clinical report demonstrates a successful multidisciplinary approach to re-creating an esthetic smile of a patient whose anterior maxillary dentition had been functionally and esthetically compromised by prosthetic and periodontal problems.
