The patient case outlined here describes the challenges that prostheses have to meet under high stress. The patient presented to the practice with pronounced abrasion and asked to have his natural dental appearance restored. Full-mouth restorations have their own challenges, and this was particularly so for this patient, who tended to relieve his daytime stress by grinding his teeth at night. After completion of pretreatment and splint therapy, the patient presented to us with the status shown in Figures 1 and 2.

The aesthetics are always a significant challenge during implant restoration, especially in the aesthetic zone, in addition to the full consideration required regarding function. In this article, we present a case of multiple tooth fractures due to trauma. After tooth extraction, immediate implantation and guided bone regeneration (GBR) were performed. During the prosthetic procedure, the design and transfer of the emergence profile of the soft tissue, functional design and occlusal adjustment, as well as the CAD/CAM process, were satisfactorily realised to achieve the aesthetic and functional goals.

The current level of technology and specialisation in all areas of life allow us to assess correctly our capabilities and limitations in the treatment of our patients. We are no longer trying to improve nature, but we are doing everything to imitate it as perfectly as possible, drawing from its best solutions. This is the essence of biomimetics.
