Developments in adhesive dentistry have provided the dental profession with new restorative materials and technology to restore esthetics and function to the missing anterior dentition. This phenomenon has been both a boon and a bane to the profession. Over the counter products, media-driven treatment plans, as well as dentists eager to please, have formed a triad with little regard for the risk/benefit calculus of dental rehabilitation. Interdisciplinary treatment planning, knowledge of available restorative materials, sequencing treatment modalities, and adequate communication between the disciplines involved are a key to a successful treatment outcome when pursuing restorative rehabilitation. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • This clinical report describes the challenges faced in the prosthetic rehabilitation of a partially edentulous patient to achieve a successful restoration in terms of biomechanics, function, and esthetics.
