Computer-Aided Design / Computer-Aided Manufacturing

Dear Friends,

I am often asked if I believe that the addition of digital dentistry to a practice can make me a better dentist. Unequivocally, I believe that the answer is YES. I actually believe this even more ever since we invested in the CAD/CAM (computer-­aided design/ computer-­aided manufacturing) cosmetic crown and bridge/veneer in-­office system. The following are some of the reasons why I believe the system is so great:


TIME EFFICIENCY (Fewer Dental Visits!)

The turnaround time for the restorations are cut in half. What used to take 2 weeks for a crown is now just a week. In some cases, this can be done in one day!


The material of choice is outstanding. You can trust that these beautiful and biocompatible crowns will last you well long term.



The fit of CAD/CAM crowns and veneers are absolutely stunning. Good marginal fit, good bite and good contacts. Which in turn make the crowns/veneers last much longer. It takes a certain level of commitment and preparation in order to take proper advantage of such leaps in technology. But, if the correct mind-­set is paired with the right advancements, there is little doubt that it makes helps us serve our patients better, and in turn, make us better dentists.

If you have been told you need a crown or veneer, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our friendly staff are looking forward to helping you make the best decision for you.

Take care and I’ll see you at your next visit.

Dr. Woo
