CAD CAM (Computer Aided Design-Computer Aided Manufacturing) means the computer-assisted tooth design and production.
Rather than the classic measurement with spoon technique (the measurement is taken from the inside of the mouth), CAD-CAM dental design allows taking pictures from all the jaw and teeth thanks to an intra-oral camera integrated with the computer.
Hence, it is possible to design the prosthesis with one session and to achieve perfect restoration in very short time. CAD-CAM technology, becoming the most prominent application areas of digital dentistry, enables our patients to have new teeth just in 2 hours.
All porcelain crowns, zirconium crowns, porcelain laminate veneers, inlay and onlay porcelain fillings have become available with this technology.
