Abstract

Dentistry is currently undergoing a digital revolution. Computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has been introduced for the construction of crowns and bridges as an alternative to the lost wax technique. The precision of CAD/CAM to produce a restoration with a predetermined internal space is crucial to allow enough room for the luting agent. Recently, luting agents have been developing rapidly, aiming to achieve minimal film thickness while possessing the low solubility and high strength necessary for long-term retention and longevity of the restoration.
The aim of this article is to describe a CAD/CAM constructed resin retained bridge that fits too well, highlighting the reason for it failing to achieve its aesthetic goal.
