The CAD/CAM process

A six-stage process in which the clinician, technician and CAD/CAM provider collaborate to deliver a high quality restoration.

  1. Consultation, diagnosis, tooth preparation and impressions
  2. Model preparation
  3. Scanning of stone model and framework design
  4. Framework manufacture (10 year guarantee)
  5. Porcelain build-up and characterisation
  6. Fitment of restoration

Difference from conventional restoration

"Chair side" CAD/CAM restoration differs from conventional dentistry in that the prosthesis is typically luted or bonded the same day. Conventional prosthesis, such as crowns, have temporaries placed from one to several weeks while a dental laboratory or in house dental lab produces the restoration.The patient returns later to have the temporaries removed and the laboratory-made crown cemented or bonded in place. An in-house CAD/CAM system enables the dentist to create a finished inlay in as little as an hour in some cases.[CAD/CAM restorations are also more conservative in their preparation of the tooth. As bonding is more effective on tooth enamel than the underlying dentin, care is taken not to remove the enamel layer.
