Our dental technicians use CAD/CAM technology to provide your cases with all-ceramic restorations characterized by precision, strength and exceptional aesthetics. This advanced technology enables our dental technicians to complete your entire case from the initial design phase through the milling process quickly and to the highest standard of quality.
CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) is used to make the design and creation of dental restorations faster and easier without any loss of quality. This dental lab technology has been widely used in the dental industry for over 20 years and is known for precision in producing tools and accuracy in making dental restorations, including veneers, bridges, crowns and implant abutments. The CAD/CAM computer simply displays a 3D custom image of your patient’s tooth or teeth taken from either a scan or a digital impression system. From there, our expert technicians can design the restoration and mill it. The restoration can then be customized with stains and glazes as needed to complete the natural look of the prosthetic.
Some benefits of using CAD/CAM technology in our lab include:
- It saves time, speeding up the production of restorations to reduce your case time to a matter of days rather than weeks. In some cases, we may even be able to complete restorations the same day for your patient.
- Final restorations can be predicted and simulated to ensure a beautiful final result.
- The final restoration will look and feel natural.
