How to Choose Detnal Lab CAD CAM Materials

Dental Lab CAD / CAM materials have become more popular and embraced technology in dentistry and lab facilities. Its technology and innovation continue to evolve as different materials are used to create restorations. There is a variety of CAD/CAM Materials used for restorations, some are available in Block form which includes; glass ceramics, resin nanoceramics, zirconia, ceramics composites, ceramic, and resin composites. All materials have been designed to provide effective restorations, however, it’s important to take time to choose a good material that suits your patients need.

What to consider when Selecting CAD/CAM Material
Confirm Intended Purpose of Material – It is important to ensure that the material has indicated the intended restoration type and placement.

Make sure you have the right equipment and supplies to use on the material for restoration

Follow instructions as per the book – To maintain the right features and thickness, you must follow each instruction with no alteration.

Patient preference – It’s important to take note of what the patient wants to know what material would suit their expectations.

About Zirconia Blocks
One of the best CAD/CAM Materials to be used is the Dental Zirconia blocks. Zirconia is known to cover bad decays, fractures, and discoloration. Its popularity has massively grown among dentists for improving tooth appearance and fixing perks. CAD/CAM’s integration into dental laboratory workflows has been driven in part by the increasing adoption of zirconia as a metal substitute. This relationship does not only go one way, however. Advances in dental CAD/CAM technology have been crucial for the development of high-strength ceramics.

The improved mechanical properties of current forms of zirconia, combined with their quality natural esthetics, have helped to make this ceramic an increasingly popular option. Without CAD/CAM technologies, well-fitted prostheses using these materials would be extremely difficult to fabricate due to the material’s increased flexural strength and fracture toughness. CAD/CAM dental labs can design, mill, and stain/glaze robust zirconia restorations in a controlled and predictable manner, leading to less stress for all involved. CAD/CAM is integral to the continued success of zirconia as a restorative material.
