DMLS and CAD/CAM Crown: The Future of Dental Technology
Dental crowns are a popular solution for restoring damaged or missing teeth, but traditional crown fabrication methods can be time-consuming and imprecise. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology have led to the development of DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) and CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) crowns.
What is DMLS?
DMLS is a process of creating a dental crown using a high-powered laser to melt and fuse metal powder. The result is a precise, durable, and custom-made crown that fits perfectly with your existing teeth.
CAD/CAM uses computer software to design the crown and a milling machine to carve it out of a block of ceramic or other materials. This method is incredibly accurate and allows for the creation of a crown in just one appointment.
