One visit crowns and veneers are now possible with CAD/CAM (Computer Aided DEsign/ Computer Aided Manufacture) technology that Dr. Giovanni Boiano, DDS utilizes in his office. The high speed optical camera accurate to within 5 microns (that’s 5/100’s of a millimeter microscopic!), allowing the restoration to be designed accurately and quickly from a solid piece of porcelain.
This CAD/CAM technology technology allows for the bare minimum of the tooth to be drilled as compared to the traditional method, which may leave “black lines” at the edges of the crowns.
