Tooth wear has a multifactorial etiology. Among the main causes are parafunctional habits, such as bruxism and clenching, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. When there is an association between etiological factors, there may be severe dental destruction, requiring extensive dental rehabilitation. The purpose of this article is to report the case of a patient who presented severe dental wear due to the etiological association of bruxism and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The patient underwent dental rehabilitation in the maxilla with single crowns after endodontic and periodontal treatments and cast metal cores. In the mandible, a Branemark protocol prosthesis was installed on osseointegrated implants.
