Hypersensitivity reactions to dental restorative materials such as metals and amalgam may induce localized lesions in oral tissues contacting the restoration, usually manifested as lichenoid reactions. It is important to recognize and diagnose the lesion and etiology and further provide a suitable alternative restorative option for the patient. This article describes a case report of lichenoid reaction secondary to cast metal and amalgam restorations and sequential management of the same.
