Advanced tooth wear : restoration using a double-veneer technique

  title={Advanced tooth wear : restoration using a double-veneer technique},
  author={Jennifer I. Foley and D. J. P. Evans},
The present case describes the management of significant tooth wear in a 13-year-old boy who presented following excessive consumption of carbonated drinks, accompanied by a “frothing” habit. The case demonstrates an alternative approach to the management of tooth wear, using a double-veneer technique, and emphasises the importance of recognition and early intervention in cases of dental erosion.
