What exactly is Cad Cam Dentistry?

CAD/CAM dentistry is a wonderful advancement in dental technology that allows me to take a picture of your tooth using a laser scanner. I send that photo to a computer that models your new tooth with greater accuracy than an old-fashioned mold can provide, and then I send the result to a three-axis milling machine, that crafts your tooth right there in the office.

No more smelly, sticky goop in your mouth, no more second or third appointments. The whole thing, from photo to brand new smile can be done in as little as two hours.

I love it. It’s one of my favorite pieces of equipment.
