The term “virtuality” has been quoted as “real but not actual, ideal but not abstract” by Marcel Proust. Visual-based reality is gaining popularity in dentistry because of its use in dealing with image-guided and robot-assisted surgery. It has provided a new approach for improving the treatments and delivering education in dentistry. The major throwback was the use of images registration by endoscope camera devices in the form of a video which can be presented on a monitor where the operator is able to observe the site inside the patient. The technologies of modern science have amazed and also fascinate our vision regarding working with patients. This literature review provides only a glance at the future of intelligence science.
