Digital Dentistry Your Way
Doing many of my crowns and veneers in-house has led to significant savings, not only in cost but in time too. I’ve worked out I save 20 minutes per restoration with CEREC, and over the weeks and months this can amount to quite a few days I get back. I’ve also made some savings in laboratory fees and temporaries.
Those cases I do outsource to the laboratory – the particularly complex cases – nearly always come back perfect. Because of the improved communications ‘going digital’ brings, it means less impression faults and remakes. My relationship with my laboratory has actually improved as a result and more of my work fits beautifully.
We’ve increased business as a result of digital dentistry – with patient referrals coming in as well as referrals from other dentists. We have recouped our investment of 2 CEREC milling units in 2 years.
