How does the CAD/CAM technology work?
The entire system consists of a scanner, a computer with software and a mill unit. A dentist treats the tooth, he/she prepares it to the required shape and then scans it using a special CEREC camera (an abbreviation of CEramic REConstruction). After scanning, the tooth is converted into a 3D model and the scan becomes three-dimensional. The following steps include designing the tooth construction which is sent by the system to the mill unit that fabricates the relevant tooth replacement. After the replacement is milled, the dentist tests it in the patient's mouth to see whether the edge seal is accurate and whether it fits the occlusion. If it does not match the colour, it can be coloured or varnished.
The prosthetic replacement is fixed to a tooth using the adhesive method.
We use the all-ceramic materials IPS e.max CAD (disilicate glass ceramics) and IPS Empress CAD (leucite glass ceramics).
For long-term temporizations we use Telio CAD.
Why use the CAD/CAM system?
- Rapid and quality outcome during one visit to dentist's office
- No temporary replacement and associated gingival inflammations
- Highly esthetic and precise implementation
- Long lifespan of the material
- Zero risk of allergies
- Perfect biocompatibility
- Effective and comfortable solution
- Gentle and painless treatment of your teeth
Using this new method you gain not only a highly esthetic replacement that will be indistinguishable from a real tooth, but also quality and painless treatment of your teeth by a proven and worldwide used technique.
