Tooth wear has started to affect a greater number of younger people. Its precautions, symptoms, and treatment modalities therefore have to be well understood. This case study presents a patient with severe tooth wear that had led to displeasing esthetics. Surgical crown lengthening and composite restorations were performed after the provision of a stabilizing splint. This helped to improve the esthetics considerably leaving the patient satisfied. The aim of this case study is to portray an approach to how even a patient with severe tooth wear can have access to an esthetically pleasing dentition.
