Mirror-image anterior crown fabrication with computer-aided design and rapid prototyping technology: a clinical report.

Author information

  • 1Department of General Dental Sciences, Marquette University School of Dentistry, Milwaukee, Wis., USA.


This clinical report describes the fabrication of a maxillary central incisor single crown with rapid prototyping (RP) technology. A patient with a recently replaced metal ceramic crown had discomfort due to the nonanatomic lingual contour of the crown. With computer-aided design (CAD) software and rapid prototyping (RP) technology, the shape of the contralateral central incisor was duplicated and reproduced to make a mirror-image for a new crown. The prosthodontic planning and treatment approach are discussed.
