CAD/CAM technology is a system we use for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing of restorations, such as a crown. The state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology provides us with extremely precise digital models of a patient’s teeth so we can create an accurate ceramic crown that will guarantee optimum results.

Best of all, we can fit the crown faster and easier, which means you’ll only have one office visit as opposed to the traditional two.

First, we will take a detailed 3-D image of your teeth. Once the image appears on the screen, we are able to use a wide range of computer diagnostic tools to manipulate your virtual 3-D model to create a personalized crown. This digital method has proven far more effective than the plaster models once used.

Cost

The cost for a crown made from CAD/CAM technology depends on many things, including:

  • The type of restoration.
  • The material chosen for the restoration.
  • The focus of the dentist.
  • All the cosmetic requirements needed on the restoration.
  • The location of the dentist.
  • The type of dental insurance you have.

Just because you choose to get a restoration using the CAD/CAM technology, this does not mean it will cost more than a regular restoration. We will be glad to talk to you about the pricing of a CAD/CAM technology-made crown.

This is just one of the ways we strive to stay on the cutting-edge of the latest technological advancements in the dental field. For more information about CAD/CAM technology, please contact us.
