Our clinical case is a 56-year-old patient with severe wear on the dental necks due to bruxism or “dental grinding”. The placement of resin veneers has allowed the original appearance and color of worn teeth to be recovered. Let us remember that dental veneers are thin sheets of resin adhered to the tooth in a definitive and lasting way.
Dental wear can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as bruxism, which is clenching or grinding of the teeth; frequent intake of acidic or carbonated substances; and/or aggressive brushing.
The wear produced leads to the aesthetic alteration of the dental pieces. Gradually, there is a reduction in the original size of the teeth and the appearance of chewing problems.
The recovery of dental shape and anatomy occurs through the placement of ceramic veneers or crowns and is one of the most frequent aesthetic dental treatments. Dental veneers adhere to the dental surface using minimally invasive techniques and allow dental reconstruction to be carried out.
