Loss of tooth substance has become a common pathology in modern society. It is of multifactorial origin, may be induced by a chemical process or by excessive attrition, and frequently has a combined etiology. Particular care should be taken when diagnosing the cause of dental tissue loss, in order to minimize its impact. Several publications have proposed the use of minimally invasive procedures to treat such patients in preference to traditional full-crown rehabilitation. The use of composite resins, in combination with improvements in dental adhesion, allows a more conservative approach. In this paper, we describe the step-by-step procedure of full-mouth composite rehabilitation with v-shaped veneers and ultra-thin computeraided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM)– generated composite overlays in a young patient with a combination of erosion and attrition disorder.

Key words: attrition, CAD/CAM composite overlays, erosion, minimally invasive rehabilitation, v-shaped veneers
