CAD/CAM Technology Improves Dental Care for Lakewood, CO Patients!
Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is used in dentistry to provide a range of dental restorations, such as dental crowns, dental veneers and dental implants. CAD/CAM dental restorations are milled from solid blocks of ceramic or composite resin that closely match the basic shade of the restored tooth.
Both Dr. Ronald Morse & team utilize CAD/CAM technology to improve cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry in our Lakewood office so that our patients can receive the care they need without having to visit multiple locations. Through this improvement in technology, Dr. Morse is able to create dental crowns in Lakewood in one easy visit. With only one visit needed to create a patient’s ceramic crowns means fewer shots, less drilling, and less time out of their busy schedule for dental care.
Other benefits of utilizing CAD/CAM for patients in Lakewood in need of dental crowns, include:
- No gooey impressions
- No temporary crowns
- Tooth colored ceramic material
- Conservative restorations retain more healthy tooth structure
Only our dentists can determine if same day crowns with CAD/CAM technology are right for you. With CAD/CAM, Dr. Morse and team can achieve the same quality and esthetic in a single visit.
