CAD/CAM technology has helped to transform the manner in which restorative treatment can be provided. In particular, the ability to provide patients with single-visit indirect restorations is appreciated by clinicians and patients. Chairside milling produces restorations that are at least as accurate as traditionally fabricated indirect restorations. Chairside milling also allows clinicians to optimize the process flow, reducing chairside time, increasing efficiency, and saving patients additional visits. As with other procedures, each step must be accurately performed. Once the learning curve has been mastered, chairside milling represents an accurate method to provide patients with efficient and esthetic restorative care.

Learning Objectives

The overall goal of this course is to provide information on CAD/CAM dentistry and the chairside milling of indirect restorations. After completing this course, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the key attributes of single-visit indirect restorative dentistry;

2. Review the process workflow options with CAD/CAM and chairside milling of restorations;

3. List potential advantages and disadvantages of chairside milling;

4. Describe the impact of CAD/CAM and chairside
