Digital Dentistry

Digital dentistry involves the introduction of CAD /CAM ­ an acronym for computer­aided design/computer­aided manufacturing. It has been used for decades in the manufacturing industry to produce precision tools, parts and automobiles. It has been increasingly incorporated into dentistry over the past 20 years.

As the materials and technology available for CAD/CAM dentistry have improved over the years, so too have the restorations that patients can receive from this form of dentistry. Today’s CAD/CAM restorations are better­fitting, more durable and more natural looking (multi­colored and translucent, similar to natural teeth) than previously machined restorations.

Dental CAD/CAM technology is available for Tracey Bell dental practices and dental laboratories, enabling dentists and their staff (or a laboratory technician) to design restorations on a computer screen. The CAD/CAM computer displays a 3­D custom image of patient’s prepared tooth or teeth obtained by digitally capturing the preparations with an optical scanner. Alternatively, the 3­D images can be obtained by scanning a traditional model obtained from conventional impressions of the preparations.
