The objectives of this case report were to treat a severe loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion with indirect composite and to evaluate the durability of the restorations. A 55-year-old male complains from severe wear of teeth, leading to a change in normal occlusal plane. Two major treatment modalities were proposed to this patient; a conventional invasive crown placement with root canal treatments or a minimally invasive approach relying on adhesion. The latter was adopted and used to treat this patient. This paper describes a step-by-step approach of the different treatment phases starting with teeth preparation, then provisional prostheses, and ending with the placement of indirect anterior veneers and posterior onlays, all made with laboratory resin composite. Satisfactory clinical results were observed over the 4-year follow-up, with minimum failures limited to one partial fracture of inlay treated with direct adhesive repair.
