Adhesion, Occlusion, and Traditional Preparation
Traditionally full mouth rehabilitation has involved invasive treatment protocols, often utilizing full coverage crowns. This can be destructive of tooth substance, expensive for the patient, and when it fails it can have disastrous consequences. These days, both dentists and patients are looking to conserve tooth structure and provide cost-effective solutions while at the same time maximizing esthetics and allowing treatment to be scheduled over time.
