Porcelain veneers have been implemented into dental procedures for years and can be fabricated using different techniques. All require an impression of the prepared tooth & the opposing arch, preparation of casts, and lengthy laboratory time. However, due to technological advances in dentistry, a dental restoration can be placed in just one single visit. The purpose of CAD/CAM technology is to design restorations within the dental office in a timely, more predictable manner. Not only are the results more predictable, the fatigue resistance and tensile strength of CAD/CAM materials have been shown to be quite excellent.
Computer assisted design and computer assisted milling (CAD/CAM) technology has been shown to be a sufficient dental treatment in patients’ cases. To read the full article “Single Visit Fabrication of a Porcelain Laminate”, click here.
