ABSTRACT

Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems as digital technologies have been introduced to the dental field to produce prostheses using machines and computers, allowing the workflow of digital veneering and quality standardization of dental restorations using of restorative materials. This study included all the studies which focused and reported the CAD/CAM systems. A filtration procedure was used to remove duplicates and irrelevant publications. The online databases PubMed and Google Scholar were used to perform a literature search for publications published until 2020, without any date or language restrictions. We used a combination of relevant search terms, such as “computer-aided design, CAD/CAM, dentistry, dental fabrication, restoration, restorative materials". We independently identified publications and systematically screened titles, abstracts, and full texts of the collected publications. Among 15 articles initially selected based on the title and abstract, 6 articles were excluded. Finally, 7 articles were selected and included in the review. There was no doubt that CAD/CAM modified the world of dentistry. The review concluded that several digital technologies, such as CAD/CAM systems are being used in various dentistry specialties. The application of CAD/CAM technology had many advantages with few limitations.

Keywords:
Computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, dentistry, dental fabrication, restoration, restorative materials.
