Digital ceramic restorations
The durability of these restorations is much higher than the other restorative techniques. Most clients prefer that the dentist repair their teeth in a way that looks exactly like a normal tooth.
Applying traditional methods of tooth reconstruction and restoration, including the use of amalgam, composite and porcelain cladding, is not a good choice to take. But with the help of digital technology, this has been made possible to a great extent, and with this technique, you can have perfectly natural teeth that have High durability and strength.
In general, digital technology for the restoration of natural teeth and implants Replaces the advanced scanning system with traditional molding and completes the treatment process with the help of digital design and machining.
This technology shortly made it possible to design and making the ceramic restorations (without metal) required to provide high quality and speed for the patient.
3D scanning with cad cam technology enables access to 3D images so that the dentist can make designs for dental treatments including cosmetic lamination, inlays, and onlays, Tooth Bridge Without the need for molding the patient’s mouth.
Another advantage of this technology is the possibility of digital molding, which, despite the high speed of manufacture, greatly enhances the accuracy of repair, this way, the treatment that dentists spent in two sessions can be done within two hours.
It should be noted that no need for molding, It is a good solution to the annoying condition of the oral molding for the patient.
Who is the best fit for using digital technology restorations?
If in your dental exam you have been advised to have dental implants, dental bridges, dental crowns, inlays and onlays, dental caries Treatment and filling the tooth, you can take advantage of this possibility.
In addition to cosmetic dentistry treatments such as designing and modifying smile designs, treating tooth irregularities, repairing tooth fractures, installing cosmetic coatings, digital dental ceramic lamination is a good option to spend less time with extra precision and elegance.
Who is not fit to use digital restorations technology?
People who do not care about their oral hygiene or have bad habits such as teeth-gnashing in their sleep are not a good candidate for ceramic tooth lamination.
Digital tooth ceramic lamination procedures
At the beginning stage of treatment, by using the advanced scanning and digital imaging capabilities of the device itself, a very accurate 3D model of the patient’s mouth will be produced, Then, with the help of designing software, using the cad cam technology the Structural defects of the patient’s mouth and teeth will be removed and a designed model for ceramic lamination will be presented.
After the modeling proses is completed, the final laminate tooth will be Lathed and made by using a digital lathe unit from a ceramic piece.
A diamond cutter, controlled by the machine’s computer, is used to cut this piece. After fabricating a ceramic laminate, the dentist will mounts the dental ceramic laminate into the patient’s teeth by using adhesive.
In most cosmetic dental clinics, dental ceramic lamination will be performed in two sessions. An also these two sessions take at least two to three weeks.
Some cosmetic dentistry clinics use more advanced equipment such as digital technology and in just one session with the help of 3D modeling software, digital design and laminate preparation will be done and in the same session, it will be installed on the patient’s teeth.
