digital dentistry page

We work with both traditional and digital (intra oral scan) impressions, so you do not have to make any investment to benefit.
With technology constantly changing, it is vital to keep up with new techniques, processes and materials.
Digital dentistry is rapidly becoming more popular and we have recently upgraded our system to ceramill from Amann Girrbach.
All stages of work are now completed in-house.
The hardware is useless without good software and we have acquired all the various software modules available to this system.
This enables us to do so much more that just basic crown & bridge work.
You still need the skilled technicians.
If asked whether this process removes the skilled technician from the equation a, the answer would be NO
You still need a skilled operator who understands tooth morphology and function to get the best quality restorations.
Then of course, you have your layered restorations, especially on anteriors, which only a highly skilled technician can do.

The process:

  • We scan traditional impression and also work from digital intra oral scans.
  • After model preparation, the models are placed into our CAD/CAM scanner and are digitally scanned.
  • This will create a 3D model on the computer, which we will use to design the restoration.
  • Once designed, the data is sent to one of our milling units, which will mill the restoration from the various materials available to us.
  • Certain materials like Zirconia and Sintron metal needs to be sintered.

Benefits of the Digital Process:

  • Exceptional restoration quality and fit.
  • Consistent quality.
  • Faster processing times, meaning faster turnaround on cases.
  • Better communication with dentists
