Our Digital Capability
We are able to receive and process scans from all major intraoral scanners such as 3Shape TRIOS® , Sirona CEREC®, Planmecca Planscan™ and Cadent iTero™. This includes any scanning machine that produces digital impressions in STL open format. We can accept and process digital orders for a wide variety of treatments - restorations (all ceramics, full metal and porcelain fused to metal crown and bridges), removable prosthodontics and implants.
Advantages of Digital CAD/CAM Dentistry over Traditional Analogue Dental Work
Our Digital Workflow
The entire workflow of dental restorations can be supported by digital technology. The digital workflow starts with a digital impression with an intraoral scanner. The dentist can design dental restorations digitally using the software. Alternatively, the dentist can order a restoration from a dental laboratory or milling centre by direct transmission of a digitally produced impression, which is sent electronically.
Analogue impressions sent to the laboratory can be incorporated into the digital workflow. Using CAD/CAM or 3D printing technology a dental laboratory can then produce a machined jaw model (instead of a manually produced plaster model).
Whether analogue or digital transmission of information occurs, the CAD/CAM process in the laboratory allows for post-processing manually for veneering.
What type of restorations can be produced by digital technology?
Note: Digital files allow the dentist and the laboratory to store information for future reference.
