Purpose: Reconstruction of patients' dental occlusion should be performed to fulfill esthetic and functional demands. These applied restorations should be in harmony with the existing occlusion and should not have any negative effects on intraoral dynamics. The aim of this clinical study is to compare the accuracy of the occlusal design shaped by conventional Wax Up methods and computer-aided design (CAD) regarding their similarity to the natural tooth morphology.
