While the concept and capability to offer same day restorations with a chairside CAD CAM system has been around for nearly 25 years, it hasn't been until the new generations of systems (E4D Dentist System, CEREC AC Bluecam) that the true potential and ease of use have been realized for the clinician and dental assistant. Creating metal-free restorations with no compromise in form, fit and function in a single appointment or even two appointments provides every dental professional and dental practice incredible benefits. I use the E4D Dentist system in my practice for a variety of indications selecting from a variety of high strength ceramic materials (IPS Empress, IPS e.max CAD) to provide my patients with unequaled service and convenience. Patients are amazed at the change in dentistry that is taking place and no longer dread the long temporary phase or making another appointment weeks from the first.
Once you have become confident in your use of the technology and proficiency in the system, you can offer your patients beautiful restorations on anterior and posterior teeth. Taking time to custom stain and glaze can provide the results shown here in as little as 2 hours.
If you haven't looked at chairside CAD CAM dentistry firsthand in the last few months you haven't looked at chairside CAD CAM dentistry. Do yourself, your patients and your bottom line a favor and check them out. It isn't a matter of if you will incoporate it but simply when.
