This case involved a young female patient with a collapsed dentition. Posterior teeth had supraerupted in response to their missing antagonists, thus leading to a very little restorative space. Teeth wear, high lip line, thin tissue biotype, and gingival recession added to the difficulties in restoring the case. A multidisciplinary approach that combined sound principles of periodontal, endodontic, prosthodontic, and implant therapy resulted in resolving the case pragmatically, while maintaining occlusal and esthetic standards.
