CAD/CAM—computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing— is a technology that allows our dental lab to generate a design (CAD) for a new crown and a model with guidelines to manufacture it (CAM). The special software uses data from a digital scan of a tooth to create 3D images for a design and manufacturing plan. Our office pairs CAD/CAM with our in-house milling machine to create crowns and implant abutments with precision and accuracy.
Benefits of CAD/CAM
The process of getting crowns or other restorative options with CAD/CAM are completed in one office visit and no longer need to be outsourced to a laboratory. This innovative new technology:
- Improves accuracy.
- Requires shorter waiting periods.
- Eliminates outsourcing costs.
