In the past two decades, interest in computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technologies for complete fixed denture has increased, such that these technologies are now widely used in dentistry. Important improvements have been made in full-arch rehabilitation using implants, and automated procedures based on CAD-CAM techniques have been developed and applied to various phases of the manufacturing workflow.2–7  For example, the ability to produce complete dentures using CAD-CAM technology provides high process reliability, and many authors have published reports on this subject.8–13  Moreover, digitalization enables conversion of the complete denture into a complete-arch interim restoration, as well as transfer of the vertical dimension of occlusion into the final full-arch fixed restoration.14,15  Other authors developed systems that were successfully employed to create virtual face replicas for comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning based on esthetic data.16,17
