Why CAD/CAM Dentistry?
If time is a concern, you’ll be happy to know that we can create veneers, inlays, onlays, and crowns in a single visit—while you wait using CAD/CAM dentistry!
At the Museum Dental Center with the state-of-the-art CAD/CAM Technology, a new porcelain restoration can be yours— in just two hours. No more gooey impressions, temporaries or try-in visits. A special computer quickly carves a block of porcelain into a perfectly fitting aesthetically beautiful restoration.
What is CAD/CAM Dentistry?
CAD/CAM is an acronym for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. Used for decades in the manufacturing industry to produce precision tools, parts and automobiles, CAD/CAM technology has been increasingly incorporated into dentistry over the past 30 years.

What are the Advantages of using CAD/CAM Dentistry?
CAD/CAM technology and metal-free materials are used by dentists and dental laboratories to provide patients with milled ceramic crowns, veneers, onlays, inlays and bridges. Dental CAD/CAM also is used to fabricate abutments for dental implants, used to replace missing teeth.
As the materials and technology available for CAD/CAM dentistry have improved over the years, so too have the restorations that patients can receive from this form of digital dentistry. Today’s CAD/CAM restorations are better-fitting, more durable and more natural looking (multi-colored and translucent, similar to natural teeth) than previously machined restorations.
Dr. Mohammad Khalifeh started using this sophisticated dental technology since 2008. We started with the E4D system. Today, we are using the 3Shape Trios wireless color scanner to capture the highest resolution and most accurate 3D intra oral scans in few minutes. The 3D digital scanner is used to replace the old impression material and stone models. 3D digital models can be printed using very accurate 3D resin printers that is available at the Museum Dental Center.
