Aim: To rehabilitate the upper central incisors and left lateral incisor with full ceramic crowns using the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technique in order to improve the esthetic of the patient. Background: The restoration of the anterior teeth was always challenging for the dentist and the laboratory technician especially when using full ceramic restorations, which tolerate less technical errors compared to porcelain fused metal restoration. The using of CAD/CAM technology permits a more accurate esthetic and precise restoration by its possibility to scan and analyze the clinical situation in all the space planes. Case description: The rehabilitation of fractured central maxillary incisors and lateral maxillary incisors by a full ceramic crown restoration using CAD/CAM technology. Conclusion: A reasonable treatment plan and an adequate conception of the restoration using CAD/CAM technology along with good oral hygiene and cooperation of the patient are the keys to the success of the rehabilitation. Clinical significance: The CAD/CAM technology by its capacity to visualize the model in a three-dimensional space is capable of manufacturing a precise and adequate restoration which improves the esthetic of our patients and also the quality of the fixed restorations.
