Benefits of Having a Dental Lab with CAD/CAM Technology

Technology developments are revolutionizing dentistry and propelling the field to new heights. Every dentist should include digital dentistry into their practice to improve the quality of your treatment using innovative tools and equipment.


Dental professionals are getting increasingly interested in CAD/CAM dentistry. CAD/CAM technology is a cutting-edge concept that allows you to create dental restorations for your patients on a computer screen. It works by using an optical scanner to capture your patient’s tooth or teeth and showing them in a 3D image. The 3D bespoke image can then be used to develop and create a dental prosthesis that fits well enough and looks normal. After using CAD software to design the appropriate restoration, the crown, bridge, or veneer will be machined and personalized to look natural and fit your patient before being exposed to high temperatures and given a final polish.


Alfarsi, being the leading Dental Equipment Provider in Muscat, Oman, provides a fully integrated CAD/CAM solution such FONA (part of Dentsply Sirona Group) MyCrown can make crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, and tiny bridges in just one visit, and it can help your clinic expand.


The entire restoration process is performed in a single session using the FONA MyCrown technology, saving time for both the patient and the dentist. Traditional impressions, waiting times, and further appointments are no longer necessary thanks to the easy scan and MyCrown design programme. The region is scanned with a state-of-the-art camera, and advanced software creates a design with great accuracy and precision while allowing for modifications for a perfect fit.


Below are the few benefits of using CAD/CAM technology in your dental clinic.

● It allows you to work more quickly and achieve the ideal design for your computerized dental treatment and make it possible to produce restorations in 2 to 5 days rather than the 2 to 3 weeks necessary in the conventional approach.

● CAD/CAM technique avoids the usage of metal amalgam by using sculpted porcelain. This decreases mercury exposure to trace levels and produces a result that is similar to a patient’s natural enamel.

● Restorations made with CAD/CAM technology are of higher quality than those made with traditional methods. For dental patients, this means sturdier, longer-lasting restorations.

● Digital scans of a patient’s teeth are used in CAD/CAM dentistry, which eliminates the need for impression material and molds. Patients escape the pain of traditional impressions, and they don’t have to wait as long for the tooth image to be created.

● CAD/CAM solutions are an excellent approach for dentists to differentiate themselves in the congested dentistry marketplace.
