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 an advanced dental restorative system that allows your dentist to restore decayed/broken teeth and place cosmetic porcelain restorations in just one appointment. This allows you to have the highest quality, most lifelike dental restorations in just one visit to the dentist…in, out, and on with your busy life.
Restore Your Smile In One Appointment
First, an Optical Impression using a mini-camera is used to scan your teeth. This Optical Impression process takes only a few minutes. Next, the PlanmecaFIT software takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model of your teeth on the computer screen. The dentist at Chicago Beautiful Smiles uses his dental expertise to design the restoration for your tooth using the computer program. Within a few minutes, your dentist clicks a button, and the restoration design data is sent to a separate milling machine in the office. A ceramic block that matches your tooth color is placed in the milling machine. About 20 minutes later, your tooth-colored porcelain restoration is ready to be tried in to ensure proper fit and bite. The restoration is then custom stained, fired, and ready to be bonded to the prepared tooth. Your tooth is restored with no “temporary” or return trip necessary. All of this is done in a single appointment.
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.
