Ceramics have been applied in restorative dentistry since the late eighteenth century because they have a natural appearance and are biocompatible. Over the past 40 years, the use of ceramics in dental restoration has grown with the development of new manufacturing technologies. Computer-aided design and computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) have revolutionized ceramic dentistry. Although ceramic restorations have achieved survival rates comparable with porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations for anterior restoration, high failure rates due to fracture are observed in all-ceramic high-load-bearing posterior restorations and summarizes the current status and challenges in applications of dental CAD/CAM systems for ceramic restorations.
