I have been using CAD/CAM single visit dentistry in my practice since 2001. I dreaded doing single tooth crowns in my practice before CAD/CAM came along. You know the scenario. The patient needs quadrant dentistry but only can afford to do one crown. So you schedule the patient for two visits for one procedure and you see your profit decrease by 20%. The gold standard of the lab being the best place for the best most accurate restorations is now changed by the fact that the labs are now using the same technology to make your lab work.
Start looking at those postcards that get sent to your office soliciting lab work from you every month. They are showing pictures of CAD/CAM mills and advertising CAD/CAM restorations. Why not do it yourself, and save at least 10-16 hours a month in a second visit appointments for a crown seat?
Take a look at the technology this year. I know you will be amazed. We use the E4D system in our practice and love it. No powder and no problems. I would recommend a trip down to Dallas, TX for a preview event where you can spend the whole day using and learning about this great opportunity to be more profitable and productive in your practice.
E4D CAD/CAM system is a complete powder-free chair side CAD/CAM system for digital impressioning, designing and fabricating metal-free inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers in your office – or collaborating with your laboratory via the E4D Sky network. You control the workflow. It gives you the best of both worlds. Your patients will love you for not putting a mouth full of impression material in their mouth.
