Exploring CAD/CAM Crowns

  • Posted on: Jun 26 2013

As one of the most popular dental restoration options, dental crowns work to strengthen and improve the appearance of teeth that have become misshapen, stained, broken, and more.  Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing, or CAD/CAM, is an option that allows for the creation of these crowns, and affords patients a number of different options in crown selection.   Traditionally, porcelain fused to metal crowns have been the choice of many patients, but CAD/CAM dentistry allows people to explore a number of different options.

While porcelain fused to metal crowns are still a popular option, they are not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing choice.  Brands like IPS Empress, IPS Emax, Lava, BruxZir, and Zirconia are all creating high-quality crowns that can provide patients with the natural, beautiful smile they desire.  Your dentist will be able to decide which type is best for you and your unique, individual needs.  Ready to learn more about some of the benefits of these CAD/CAM crowns?

Top 3 Benefits of CAD/CAM Crowns

  1. Superior cosmetics. The crowns created with CAD/CAM dentistry are designed with aesthetics in mind, working to restore a natural appearance in the patient’s mouth.  Additionally, the color is matched to that of a patient’s existing teeth to create the most realistic appearance possible.
  2. Durable. CAD/CAM crowns are a durable option, made from high-strength materials.  Durability is especially important, as crowns must be able to withstand a patient’s natural chewing forces.
  3. More tolerable. Since these crowns are made without metal, they benefit those with metal allergies who may not have been able to previously explore dental crowns.
