CAD/CAM dentistry involves a digital impression from an intraoral scan taken in the mouth of the tooth preparation. The accurate images reproduce the tooth in your mouth down to the very last detail. This accuracy ensures an accurate fit of the restoration with far less discomfort than traditional, messy impression methods and less processing time.
These images allow the dentist to design the restoration on the computer, producing a 3D model, which is then sent to the in-house CEREC CAM milling centre, where the ceramic restoration is made while you wait. The dentist then simply fits the restoration and cements it into place.
