3Shape Same-Day Dentistry

At Kusek Family & Implant Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Edward Kusek and Dr. Andrew Schuiteman use advanced 3Shape CAD/CAM technology in our dental office to offer same-day restorations to our patients. 

3Shape CAD/CAM technology 

Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) refers to the process of designing and manufacturing customized products using a computer. When used in dentistry, the process involves using digital scans and images to design crowns, bridges, veneers, and other restorations. 

How Do CAD/CAM works?

CAD/CAM technology allows a dentist to digitally scan the prepared tooth. The scanned image is used to create a 3D rendering of the tooth, which is used to guide the restoration process. The digital impression is then sent to a dental lab, where restoration is made. The dentist can use CAD/CAM technology to scan and mill restorative materials using a milling machine. Patients leave the dental office with a fully functioning, permanent dental crown or other restoration on the same day.

Benefits of 3Shape Same-Day Dentistry

There are a number of solutions available for patients with missing teeth, including traditional dentures and bridges. But, today, there is another choice. With same-day dentistry, patients can have their smiles restored in just one appointment.

Same-day dentistry uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create a full dental crown, inlay, or onlay. Instead of waiting weeks for a dental lab to craft your restoration, a dental technician uses CAD/CAM technology to design your restoration and create it in-house.

Same-day dentistry offers a number of benefits over traditional restorations. For example:

  • Same-day dentistry is a short procedure. Patients can receive their restoration in as little as one appointment.
  • Same-day dentistry offers less downtime. With traditional restorations, patients need to wait while their restoration is in the dental lab. With same-day dentistry, patients can leave their appointment with a new smile, not a temporary restoration.
  • Same-day dentistry can be made from a variety of materials. Same-day dentistry restorations can be made from zirconia, one of the hardest materials available in dentistry. Zirconia can be color-matched to your natural smile, so no one will be able to tell that you have a restoration.
