A patient with severely attrited dentition suffers from generalized sensitivity, mobility of teeth, compromised esthetics and decreased vertical dimension of occlusion which results in a dentition compromised in form, function and esthetics due to which the patient suffers from lack of confidence. The objectives of the treatment for such case should be preservation of the remaining tooth structure, restoration of optimum function, esthetics with least invasive procedures, cost effective treatment, and shorter treatment time.
