Thanks to advances in dental technology, crowns no longer have to take weeks to process and endure. With the latest in dental CAD/CAM technology, we can create and place a crown in one day.
CAD/CAM stands for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing. This technology allows the dentist to use an intraoral scanner inside the mouth. These digital scans of your tooth are used by special software to generate a CAD image for a custom crown. These custom blueprints and guidelines are used to manufacture the new crown (CAM) with a milling machine. CAD/CAM enables Newman Family Dental to create precise and custom crowns, inlays and onlays in one single visit.
