CAD/CAM Dentistry

How do CAD/CAM restorations differ from conventional restoration techniques?

CAD/CAM Dentistry is a field of dentistry that uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technologies to improve the design and creation of dental restoration, At Goodman Dental Center we use this technology to create accurate and comfortable crowns.

Time Frame

Process

Color Matching

Once the broken or decayed area of the tooth is corrected, a digital scan is taken and uploaded into a computer that creates a replacement for the missing tooth, resulting in a virtual restoration.

The virtual data is sent to a milling machine that carves the replacement part out of the block of ceramic or composite resin. Afterward, the surfaces of the restoration are fired with stains and glazes to fix inconsistent colors. Then it is adjusted in the patient’s mouth and cemented or bonded into place.

That’s it!

We offer CAD/CAM crowns here at Goodman Dental Center to keep our practice up to date on advanced technology, so we can provide you with the benefits dentistry advancements make possible! Call our office today to learn more about CAD/CAM restorations, or to schedule your next appointment!
