Restorative treatment for patients with dental erosion requires an analysis of the degree of structural damage. Patients affected by moderate to severe dental erosion are particularly challenging because complex occlusal reconstruction will be needed. Ultrathin bonded occlusal veneers represent a conservative alternative to traditional onlays and complete coverage crowns for the treatment of severe erosion. This article describes a complete mouth rehabilitation with ultrathin computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) composite resin occlusal veneers in a patient with a severely eroded dentition. In the maxillary anterior teeth, the bilaminar approach was chosen with lingual composite resin veneers and labial porcelain veneers. The main benefit of this approach is the possibility of using additive adhesive techniques, allowing only strategic reduction of sound dental structure or no preparation.
