Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing has been responsible for developing precision implements in many fields, encompassing Centennial dentistry.

An office computer allows the dentist to create an image of his vision for reconstruction onto a computer screen. The dentist can use the image to compliment and complete his design. The restoration, be it a bridge, crown,veneer, etc., is then manufactured from a ceramic-based material, and stained or glazed for color and finish.

This kind of digital processing makes for more durable, and more comfortably fitting dental fixtures.
