This manuscript summarises the reasons behind choosing indirect restorations in the treatment of tooth wear. The purpose of this article is to discuss the use of crowns as a restorative treatment option for tooth wear. There are also challenges with the use of composites as they can repeatedly fail and in these situations the indications for crowns for treatment of tooth wear is worthy of consideration. This article is part of a themed issue discussing the management of tooth wear.

Introduction: Perceiving the high prevalence of direct composite restoration technique usage for the rehabilitation of patients with increased tooth wear, as well as during the sanitation of oral cavi...
This study evaluated the effect of two antagonist substrates (Y-TZP/zirconia or stainless steel) on the wear rate and surface alterations of different composite materials and bovine tooth substrates (...
Tooth wear is a multifactorial condition of growing concern. In clinical practice, it is often a challenge for prevention and treatment since many etiological factors may be involved. This case report...
Ecological factors, but also tooth-to-tooth contact over time, have a dramatic effect on tooth wear in primates. The aim of this study is to test whether incisor tooth wear changes predictably with ag...
Masticatory performance is influenced by a number of variables such as age, gender, bite force, and occlusal units. Tooth wear may also play a role due to changes in occlusal area and in vertical dime...
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the wear characteristics and clinical performance of lithium silicate crowns in comparison to monolithic zirconia crowns. The quality of the ov...
Tooth wear is a physiological process occurring from normal functioning of the dentition throughout lifetime. The studies in the current literature indicated that both techniques of tooth...
The aims of this clinical study are: To evaluate the clinical performance between indirect composite and ceramic laminate veneers: Main interests are: - colour stability ...
This randomized clinical trial aims to compare the clinical outcomes of two full‑coronal-coverage restorations (locally-made preformed Zirconia crowns [LMP] and NuSmile Zirconia crowns [...
The objectives of this study are to characterize the clinical performance and wear mechanisms of all-ceramic posterior crowns. The wear rate of all-ceramic crowns and opposing enamel in s...
Occlusal wear of the surfaces of restorations and surface wear of dentures.
Restorations of metal, porcelain, or plastic made to fit a cavity preparation, then cemented into the tooth. Onlays are restorations which fit into cavity preparations and overlay the occlusal surface of a tooth or teeth. Onlays are retained by frictional or mechanical factors.
Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes
A type of porcelain used in dental restorations, either jacket crowns or inlays, artificial teeth, or metal-ceramic crowns. It is essentially a mixture of particles of feldspar and quartz, the feldspar melting first and providing a glass matrix for the quartz. Dental porcelain is produced by mixing ceramic powder (a mixture of quartz, kaolin, pigments, opacifiers, a suitable flux, and other substances) with distilled water. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
A prosthetic restoration that reproduces the entire surface anatomy of the visible natural crown of a tooth. It may be partial (covering three or more surfaces of a tooth) or complete (covering all surfaces). It is made of gold or other metal, porcelain, or resin.
