Case Study
The article presents the case of a 23-year old woman on utilizing castable ceramic crown system. The patient has occlusal and facial eroded areas. Due to severe reduction of the occlusal enamel and dentin, the vertical height was lost. A full reconstruction with the Dicor castable ceramic crown system was tried in which a new tooth preparation technique utilizing glass onlays was used for the maxillary molars.
