Cosmetic dentistry has changed its functionality a lot since it started finding use amidst many patients who wanted to look good while having healthy oral hygiene. However, cosmetic dentistry still comes second after restorative dentistry has given the fact that restorative options are of utmost importance as compared to cosmetic ones. However, the cosmetic aspect of dentistry is rising steadily especially with the help of technology and cost-effective procedures.
- The restoration of dental elements is first planned with the help of a computer screen that captures the mouth’s image with the help of optical scanners. It is among the best and revolutionary technologies in the market, especially CERC omnicam 4.2. This scanner takes the exact replica from the mouth with natural colors with no need for any unpleasant coating that tastes bad as used in previous scanners that enhanced the mouth details. These digital changes have prevented the requirement for any impression material placed inside the mouth for long durations.
- The CAD software helps with creation of the restoration requirements and the cumulative time taken for the completion of the task varies as per the complexity of the case. Additionally, an in-house CAM lab fastens the process as opposed to the requirement outsourced.
- This restoration of dental implants is manufactured with the use of printing or milling of material which uses a separate technology based on CAM.
