The treatment involving the facial esthetics is not only demanding for the patient but also tasking for the clinician. It involves the astute skill of the prosthodontist, maintaining the health of all the oral structures. This clinical report describes the prosthodontic management of a 37-year-old male patient with severe attrition of natural dentition. The treatment plan was executed keeping in mind not only the worn down dentition but also treating the whole stomatognathic system. Utmost care was taken to achieve harmonious occlusion with no possible occlusal interferences which will further initiate the habit of bruxism and thereby cause more wear of teeth. The treatment was spread over a period of time so as to achieve perfect harmony within the masticatory system. The step-wise treatment procedure followed while treating this case has been presented in a simple and systematic manner.
