Continuously developing technology closely affects dentistry, and thanks to the new generation of three-dimensional intraoral cameras and production units, patients can be treated in a single session dental aesthetics restorations.
What are the Dental Aesthetic Treatments Applied with CAD-CAM Units?
In recent days ceramic lamina veneers, which we frequently hear as porcelain laminate veneers, can be applied to people with mild colour, shape or position disorders in their front teeth.
Compared to classical methods (crowns, veneers), much less abrasion is applied to the tooth tissue, resulting in high level aesthetic results.
Dental Aesthetics & Digital Fillings
Digital fillings are high-level restorations that combine all the advantages of classical filling methods.
Classical amalgam fillings (metal-looking) have been applied for years due to their durability and longevity, while the controversy about their toxic effects continues; light-cured white fillings are applied as a good alternative to black fillings due to their aesthetics despite problems such as sensitivity and short lifespan.
However, classical filling materials may be insufficient for the treatment of deeply decayed, severely worn or root canal treated tooth. Because such teeth need materials that are both robust, aesthetic, long-lasting and support the tooth tissue well.
This is only possible by producing the filling from a solid material outside the mouth (casting or baking techniques) and then applying it to the relevant tooth. However, these applications, which require multiple sessions in the classical clinical routine, are rarely preferred by both physicians and patients for filling treatment.
The development of technology, the introduction of digital intra-oral scanners and three-dimensional production devices into clinics have enabled these high-end fillings and restorations to be applied to the patient’s mouth in a single session.
Mostly ceramic and hybrid (ceramic-composite mixture) produced from materials digital dental fillings. It offers permanent solutions to patients with its structures that are at least as long-lasting as amalgam fillings, more aesthetic than white fillings that harden with light, and support the tooth very well.
Digital Crowns & Bridges
Thanks to CAD-CAM technology, patients can receive veneers that routinely require multiple sessions in a single session. Digital crowns and bridges are produced by engraving from solid ceramic or zirconia blocks.
These restorations, whose tooth compatibility is measured at the micron level physician and offers patients a fast, aesthetic and long-lasting treatment procedure.
Thanks to digital technologies, physicians are without rehearsal; in one session can produce long-lasting restorations from the most aesthetic material. It seems that the “Single Session Indirect Restoration Concept”, which creates great satisfaction in patients who regain their permanent teeth without using temporary teeth, will continue to make us smile with many different application modalities in the coming years.
