CAD/CAM dentistry is a field of dentistry and prosthodontics using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) to improve the design and creation of dental restorations, especially dental prostheses, including crowns, crown lays, veneers, inlays and onlays, fixed bridges, dental implant restorations,dentures (removable or fixed), and orthodontic appliances. CAD/CAM complements earlier technologies used for these purposes by any combination of increasing the speed of design and creation; increasing the convenience or simplicity of the design, creation, and insertion processes; and making possible restorations and appliances that otherwise would have been infeasible. Other goals include reducing unit cost and making affordable restorations and appliances that otherwise would have been prohibitively expensive. However, to date, chairside CAD/CAM often involves extra time on the part of the dentist, and the fee is often at least two times higher than for conventional restorative treatments using lab services. CAD/CAM is one of the highly competent dental lab technologies.
CAD/CAM Dentistry is a field of dentistry that uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technologies to improve the design and creation of dental restoration, At Clínica Dental Sanmartin we use this technology to create accurate and comfortable crowns, Veneers, Inlays and Implant Abutments.
CAD/CAM restorations require less preparation than standard restorations because they are more effectively bonded on the enamel of a tooth rather than on the underlying dentin. Care is then taken to leave the layer of enamel because of this difference.
