Fig. 6

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

Fig. 7

Palatal aspect of the restoration, immediate after the cementation.

Fig. 8

Restoration immediate after the cementation.

Fig. 9

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

Fig. 10

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.

Fig. 12

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



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.
