For this reason the correct planning and approach selection for every single stage of the treatment plan should be wisely chosen. Aim: The aim of the current case report is to propose an approach for aesthetic rehabilitation of the maxillary dental arch using a hybrid method. Case report: A full arch maxillary restoration was done by the means of both digital and conventional techniques for planning and denture fabrication. Conclusion: The digital technologies develop incredibly fast, at same time they become integral part of each treatment plan, as they ensure faster, more predictable and reliable result to be achieved. Despite their positives they are able to accumulate errors that cannot be predicted. For this reason they should be used wisely, as the most suitable treatment approach should be chosen for every case.
