Papillon–Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by palmoplantar keratosis and premature loss of primary and permanent dentition. Its onset can be as early as 1–4 years of age. The genetic disorder is mutation in the cathepsin C gene. Hereby, we discuss the fabrication of Cu-sil dentures for the prosthetic rehabilitation of a 14-year-old girl with PLS. The case report describes the procedure and associated relevant information regarding the management protocols.
