CAD-CAM is the acronym for computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing, is a revolutionizing density altogether, but it’s not a relatively new way of manufacturing commodities, for decades it has been used to manufacture precision tools, machinery parts and automobiles and for the past 20 years it has been fused with dentistry.
Dentists use the CAD-CAM technology with metal free materials to provide patients with milled ceramic crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges and dental implants.
The precision and craftsmanship of the CAD-CAM technology
The Dental CAD-CAM technology is available for Dental clinics, laboratories enabling dentists and technicians to design tooth restoration on a computer screen.
The CAD-CAM computer displays a 3D custom-made image of your prepared tooth with the help of an optical scanner. Then the laboratory technician uses that 3D image and the CAD software to draw and design the tooth, the finesse of the designed tooth depends on the skill, precision and experience of the technician, so the designing period varies from a few minutes to hours.
Once the final design is done on the CAD computer the crown, veneer, bride or implant is milled from a single block of ceramic material in the milling chamber. The designed tooth is further given its final touches with stains and glaze to give it a more of a natural look, before being fired in an oven and then polished.
