The initial introduction of CAD/CAM systems into the dental laboratory was led by one material–zirconia. However, CAD/CAM systems, particularly the software used for restoration design, have improved and the applications for the technology have multiplied. Besides streamlining our production processes, the technology has been instrumental in the proliferation of monolithic materials available today. These systems have become the workhorses of the modern dental laboratory. At the same time, they help us to deliver restorations to your practice with predictability at a reasonable cost.
As with any machine, the digital dentistry systems would not be as valuable without talented technicians operating them. Whether a case is milled in wax to be processed using a more traditional technique or milled out of ceramic ready for processing, there is still a significant amount of time and effort spent to meet–or exceed–your expectations.
