2. DESIGN (using CAD - Computer-Aided Design)
When this digital scanning with 1 of 2 options is completed, we will draw out the margins where your final restoration would end and compare it to the actual preparation that we have made on your teeth, and the final image will be then sent via an electronic file to a CAM unit for the final milling.
There are a few different types of milling units available but the best and well tested CAD/CAM units are made by Sirona / Germany as it has the longest history and research behind it. With over 95% survival rate on all of the dental restorations ever made, Sirona system was selected by our dental clinic to provide the best outcome for our patients.
The CEREC software facilitates the easy editing of the virtual restoration for the most reliable result. We can work simultaneously on several different restorations in the same time and the design tools can be applied to contralateral teeth in two different quadrants. This produces highly esthetic and accurate results.
