The traditional oral rehabilitation of the patient with deep bite and brachifacial can be very complex and invasive, however, a number of treatments could be considered to improve rehabilitation. A comprehensive aesthetic-occlusal analysis is necessary prior to starting treatment in order to consider the best procedure, time involved, and economic cost. Adhesive dentistry allows an additive and non-invasive proposal as a medium-term or transitory treatment. A case of a 46-year-old patient is presented, with anterior deep bite and severe dental wear on palatal surfaces of the antero-superior teeth, without temporomandibular dysfunction, or systemic compromises. The objective was to emphasize the aesthetic and occlusal rehabilitation with the least biological commitment (ultraconservative), through semi-indirect adhesive restorations of composite resin with 12 months follow-up. This restorative proposal with composite resins represents an alternative treatment for patient management with anterior deep bite. Control at one year of treatment showed that a sequence and resolution was followed, that ensured adequate oral rehabilitation in the least invasive manner possible.

KEY WORDS: dental occlusion; dental esthetic; composite resin, tooth wear, dental restoration.
