CAD/CAM restorations in one visit –
When a tooth needs a restoration, we can often use CAD/CAM technology. The letters “CAD/CAM” stand for “computer-aided design” and “computer-aided manufacturing”. We can use this technology to custom-design and fabricate tooth-colored restorations, crowns, onlays, inlays, or veneers, all in one appointment. CAD/CAM restorations are often the best choice for a healthy, beautiful, and natural-looking smile.

The benefits of CAD/CAM restorations –

CAD/CAM restorations have several advantages –
•They are very accurate.
•Only a minimal amount of tooth preparation is needed, leaving more of the healthy tooth structure intact.
•They usually require only one appointment, even when we are working on more than one tooth.
•The restorations are made of tooth-colored materials.
