CAD/CAM Technology : 1 Day Dentistry: Same Day Porcelain Restoration
CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) dentistry is the epitome of Modern Dentistry. CAD/CAM uses digital imaging, so you get a precise fit without all the mess of a traditional impression. There are no temporaries and no need for a second visit. You can say goodbye to gooey impressions, touchy temporaries, and the inconvenience of additional appointments to cement the final restorations.
PlanmecaFIT technology is a dental system used for advanced restoration that allows a dentist to repair decayed/broken teeth and place cosmetic porcelain restorations in one visit. This procedure allows you to get on with your life, while offering the most advanced restorations in one appointment with your dental professional.
Restore Your Smile in One Appointment
First, an Optical Impression using a mini-camera is used to scan your teeth. This Optical Impression procedure can take place in only a few short minutes. Next, the PlanmecaFIT software is able to take digital pictures and then convert them into a virtual model that appears on the screen of a computer. The dentist at Chicago Beautiful Smiles uses his knowledge to implement a restoration for your tooth using the computer. With a simple click of a button, the dentist sends the restoration data to a milling machine. Then, a tooth matching ceramic block is placed inside. Within 20 minutes, your tooth-colored porcelain restoration is ready to be tried in to ensure it fits and works properly. Then the restoration is custom stained, fired, and ready to be bonded to the awaiting tooth. Once this is finished, your tooth is fully restored with no need to return for follow-up appointments.
Enjoy Long-Lasting Results
PlanmecaFIT porcelain restorations are milled from high-quality, luminous porcelain. When you choose conservative PlanmecaFIT porcelain restorations, our dentist is able to save more of your natural tooth structure than with traditional crowns. Your final restoration will not only look natural, it will be durable enough to last through the rigors of your daily life.
