Abstract

The aim of this article is to describe a systematic approach that facilitates the establishment of a clear and appropriate diagnosis when a dentate patient presents with tooth wear involving their aesthetic zone. It will also detail the protocols that are required to allow for the development of an acceptable aesthetic prescription within the limits of the functional constraints presented by the patient (where active restorative intervention may be indicated), as well as to communicate the manner by which this information can be transferred to ultimately enable the successful and predictable rehabilitation of the affected areas. An overview will also be provided of the tooth-coloured dental materials and restorative techniques that have been commonly applied to deliver the predictable and effective dental care of worn teeth in the aesthetic zone.
