Implant-supported crowns, full-coverage fixed dental prostheses and inlay-retained fixed partial prostheses are treatment methods typically used for the rehabilitation of a single missing posterior tooth. With the increasing emphasis on conservative treatment in dentistry, inlay-retained adhesive restorations are becoming popular. With the progress of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, ceramic restorations in the posterior region can be fabricated with sufficient esthetic and mechanical properties. This case report illustrates an alternative approach to the rehabilitation of narrow edentulous spaces with ceramic materials by CAD/CAM technique with minimally invasive approaches.
