    Background: Increased patient demand for esthetic dentistry has generated interest in all-ceramic dental restorations. An overview of the types of wear simulating devices will allow us to better understand the multifactorial nature of wear. Aim: The aim of the review is to critically analyze the different wear simulators that are available in the market for dentistry and their capacity to mimic the wear conditions. Materials and Methods: A search on keywords highlights the most common in vitro wear simulators and their use in the laboratories for various simulation applications. Results: Wear is a complex process, which cannot be simulated in total while controlling all variables. Conclusion: Even the most sophisticated wear simulator would have limitations.
