Computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM technology) is an innovative fabrication system that is used increasingly nowadays. Inlays, onlays, veneers or even crowns of different thickness can be produced using this technology. In the following presentation a dysplastic canine is being restored in one visit with CADCAM technology. The whole procedure is being presented in the following video and representative pictures are included in the text.

Restoring the shape and fuction of a canine using CADCAM technology.

Isolation of the field before cementation.

Air abrasion with aluminium oxide.

Air abrasion with aluminium oxide.

Etching with 37% phosporic acid gel.

Etched surface of the canine before cementation.

Design of the restoration. Examination of recorded positions of the mandible.

Palatal aspect of the restoration, immediate after the cementation.

Restoration immediate after the cementation.

Scanning with the omnicam is even possible with the use of a rubber dam in place.

The polycromatic block is placed so with the help of the software algorithm we can achive a chromatic dentin and a more translucent incisal area.

Follow up, 1 month after the cementation.


With the proper material selection along with the proper techniques (adhesion and isolation), prepless and very thin restorations can be elaborated with chair side CAD/CAM technology in one single appointment.
