With the advancing digital technology and introduction of newer biocompatible materials with properties similar to biological tissues, CAD CAM fabricated restorations are gaining wide popularity. Introduction of Zirconia and BioHPP (High Performance Polymer) Polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) has widened the horizons of clinical prosthodontics. Its use has been successfully demonstrated in implantology for fabrication of frameworks and as substructures for replacement of missing teeth. Literature evidence and clinical reports highlighting their usage for long span FDPs is however scanty. This article aims to highlight
a combination of digital-analogue procedure for successful rehabilitation of mutilated and missing anterior teeth in a young adult using virtual articulator, modified Bio-HPP PEEK restorations and manufacturer recommended Visio.lign system.
Keywords: Virtual Articulator, BioHPP PEEK, Visiolign.
