Applying digital technology in dental restorations

Digital restorations bring many benefits to both the performing dentist and the customer.  Let’s learn more about the concept and advantages of this method in the article below!

Digital dental restorations can be applied to help fix all dental problems

Dental restoration methods can bring improvements in chewing function, comprehensive changes in the aesthetics of teeth.  At present, modern digital technology has been applied in dental restoration methods.  This is to better meet user needs and improve the performance of dentists.

1. How is digital applied in dental restorations?

The application of digital technology in dental restorations shortens the process and improves accuracy.  Moreover, the functional and aesthetic aspects of the teeth are also optimized, bringing health and beauty to the teeth and smiles of customers.

 So specifically, how is digital applied in dental restorations?  We invite you to read the content below.

1.1 Concepts

CAD/CAM supports the design and manufacture of dentures through a computer system

Digitalization applied in dental restoration is also known as CAD/CAM technology.  CAD/CAM stands for Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing.

 CAD/CAM technology is currently being widely applied in many fields, and dentistry is one of them.  Besides the manufacturing process of labo, prosthetic dental products, CAD/CAM technology is also applied to the process of examination, consultation and treatment of maxillofacial teeth at large clinics and hospitals.

 Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, the tooth surface information, occlusal correlation, relationship with the jawbone….  correctly transmitted to the computer system.  Technicians (KTVs), dentists will adopt these specifications to design “virtual” restorations on a computer.  This virtual restoration is an effective alternative to hand-made wax.  Then, the technician will create a real restoration based on the model just designed.

1.2 Advantages

CAD / CAM technology helps create porcelain teeth with the same color as real teeth, more durable

The application of digital in dental restoration brings many benefits to both customers, dentists and KTV:

  • CAD / CAM technology helps to bring the results of porcelain teeth that are restored effectively, more durable, with the same color and clarity as real teeth.
  • The design of porcelain teeth is completed quickly, restoring porcelain teeth with maximum precision.
  • Technology helps dentists and customers save time trying, adjusting teeth.
  • Technicians can design and fabricate restorations easily through a computer thanks to detailed information uploaded through the function of Scanning technique.
  • Through CAD technology, technicians can design a “virtual computerized” restoration in detail.  After that, KTV can edit easily if necessary.  Next, KTV can proceed to convert this restoration to automatic production through CAM technology.  This system helps to control the raw material cutting machine to produce finished products with precision down to each micron according to the sample.
  • Digital dental restorations are applied in overcoming all defects of molars such as decayed teeth, yellowed teeth, missing teeth…
  • In addition to dentures, CAD/CAM technology is also used in manufacturing many other useful products such as bridges, crowns, veneers, etc.
  • Cement used in porcelain restorations does not make porcelain restorations, does not blacken, does not harm the pulp tissue of the teeth.

1.3 CAD/CAM technology

The use of CAD/CAM technology in dental restoration is very popular in the world.  Thanks to this technology, dental lab products are rated more positively, resulting in a higher level of customer satisfaction.

CAD / CAM technology helps to automate the production of dentures, bridges, crowns…

 Through the computer, CAD/CAM technology receives and processes all information of molars.  This technology consists of two parts, CAM and CAD.  In particular, CAD allows dentists to scan teeth, design and adjust restorations easily on a computer.

 Particularly, CAM is responsible for automatic control of lathes, robot arms, and raw material cutting machines for direct production on CAD samples.  Through that, the solid, raw material block will be processed into a dental restoration model with perfect accuracy and beauty. 

2. Digital prosthetic doctor

3. Implementation process

Digital restorations save time and improve treatment results

 The digital dental restoration process consists of 3 basic steps as follows:

  •  Step 1: The doctor records the shape and details of the tooth sample

 This is the first step in the labo manufacturing process.  The machine will scan directly on the teeth or scan through the jaw sample to record the details of the tooth shape.  After that, the KTV will use a Laser Scanner to put the image into the computer to be processed and output 3D data.  The teeth will be accurately redrawn.  After that, the computer will adjust the exact touch points and bite points for the restoration design step.

  •  Step 2: Design detailed contours for “virtual” porcelain teeth on the computer

 The computer will receive the data through the scanning process in step 1. After that, the machine will process the information and design the “virtual” porcelain teeth with 3D software.

  •  Step 3: KTV proceeds to shape and perfect real porcelain teeth.

 After the 3D design on the computer is completed, the KTV will choose the appropriate porcelain ingot, tooth shape, etc.  Then, CAM technology will control the robot arm and lathe system to create the finished product, exactly as the design received.


 In the past, dentists often had to manually perform, plan, and outline teeth on plaster and joint brackets.  This sometimes causes the results to be erroneous and also makes it impossible to create a simulation of the treatment results for the client to preview.  The application of digital in dental restoration helps to overcome all these weaknesses.  In addition, porcelain teeth made by digital prosthetics also have high aesthetics, optical characteristics, clarity and smooth surface like real teeth.  You can contact the dental center directly for more detailed advice about this method.
