The CAD CAM technology is used to create porcelain restorations (crowns, inlays/onlays) in a single appointment to restore damaged teeth. At Molars Dental Clinics, we offer porcelain veneers restorations in a single visit. Why go to the dentist a second time if you don’t have to?
About Intra CAD CAM System
The CAD CAM technology is used to create porcelain restorations (crowns, inlays/onlays) in a single appointment to restore damaged teeth. Teeth with extensive cavities cannot be successfully restored using composites, and even if restored, it will not last for a long time. The solution is Porcelain Restorations. In the early days, dentists had to take an impression of the damaged tooth and send it to a dental lab and wait for a week to receive the ceramic crown or restoration. In the meantime, the patient would be given a temporary restoration. Now, porcelain restoration can be made in the clinic on the same day.
How It Works
This cutting-edge tool has a very high-resolution scanner, which we use to scan the damaged tooth surface. Using high-end software, the dentist designs the porcelain restoration to replace or crown the damaged area, mimicking a perfect tooth anatomy. The dentist chooses the shade of the ceramic block to match the natural color of your teeth. This scanned design is then sent to a milling unit located in the clinic, which then mills the final restoration to the precise specifications. Once the porcelain restoration is complete, it is then bonded to your tooth.
- Same day restorations can be done in most cases.
- No temporary crowns or restorations that can break and cause discomfort.
- Your time is saved as you have fewer visits to the dentists.
- Longevity of the porcelain is much higher than composite to restore large cavities.
- Porcelain inlays mimic teeth structure more closely and do not stain as easily as composite
