For a full-mouth fixed prosthetic treatment of the edentulous patient, it is essential to confirm the proper tooth position and thorough evaluation of the remaining alveolar bone and soft tissue before surgery. CAD-CAM dentistry and guided implant surgery have such advantages of providing simultaneous planning of surgery and prosthetic treatment to ensure pre-knowledge of the treatment. In this clinical case, using the digital technology, digital temporary denture fabrication, esthetic evaluation before fixed prostheses treatment, and guided surgery planning was possible. After the surgery, previously obtained data was used for fabricating fixed temporary prostheses. Definitive zirconia prostheses transferred from the provisional prostheses were fabricated and functionally and esthetically satisfying results were obtained.
