Digital technologies offer access to more diagnostic information and enable a higher predictability for the final result. With the transfer into monolithic polymer materials innovative options for the clinical evaluation of esthetics and function are available.

CAD/CAM-fabricated bi-maxillary splints allow to exploring the final treatment goal in reversible test drives. Based on removability of the splints, surgical,periodontal, and restorative pre-treatments can be integrated in this period.
The transfer into definitive restorations can be divided into multiple treatment steps minimizing risk factors of complex rehabilitations.  The introduction of adhesive technique in  combination with translucent restorative materials severely influenced the treatment concepts in fixed prosthodontics. 
Modern production technologies nowadays offer the access to new polymer materials that provide the access to new ceramic types and thus extended the range of indications for metal-free restorative options for both natural teeth and implants.

With these developments, important changes of treatment concepts in fixed prosthodontics occurred, which affect the professional life of dental practitioners with a focus on prosthetic dentistry
