Abstract

Purpose To show through computer-aided design and manufacturing technology combined with novel digital acquisition images and the right restorative material that the technology can provide an easier and predictable workflow for general practitioners. Basic Procedure This case report presents a fully digital treatment of a 59-year-old patient with tooth-supported crowns and provides a detailed step-by-step digital technique to obtain a successful result. Conclusion By avoiding traditional impression and fixed prosthetic techniques, excellent clinical results can be obtained, minimizing the required steps and simplifying the overall procedure. This adds information to the current literature, allowing general practitioners to choose the best treatment option. The function and esthetics remained unaltered over a 1-year follow-up period. No fracture or decementation was observed.
