Sameer Puri, DDS, - Digital dentistry, particularly CAD/CAM, continues to grow in use for fabricating a wide variety of dental restorations. Although the machining system is the primary facilitator in this scheme, the milled materials themselves are just as important in determining the long-term success or failure of the system. This presentation will provide a review of current block materials for full contour restorations and will discuss the clinical efficacy of milled restorations in the context of “conventional” alternatives such as amalgam, direct composite resin, lab fabricated ceramics, and PFM restorations. The latest information on machinable materials and their use will be discussed, including materials available through the laboratory using digital impressions.
