Abstract Diagnosis and treatment planning of severely worn dentition are complex and complicated. Erosion is one of the common causes of lost tooth surface. Defining the etiology of the erosion is essential before proceeding with treatment to be able to provide the most predictable treatment outcome. Multiple specialists including psychologists, family medicine practioners, and social workers should be involved in the diagnosis and the prevention of a continuing erosion process. The treatment plan should be based on the severity of the tooth surface lost. It can range from simple direct restorations to a full-mouth rehabilitation. This clinical report is a detailed description of a complex prosthodontic diagnostic index class IV patient based on current evidence-based dentistry. © 2013 by the American College of Prosthodontists.
