Two Crowns One Milling Machine

This is a lesson in chairside efficiency for all CAD/CAM users. Traditionally, you would be forced to prep two teeth and impress them both at same time, but with digital dentistry, you can break the case up and do it in segments, as if they are two separate patients involved.

In this particular case, the restorations were designed, milled, and seated in a single appointment.  To speed things along, only the second premolar was addressed; it was prepared, imaged, designed and milled.  While milling, the second molar was prepared.

After the tryin, they were chrystalized and seated at the same time.  Leveraging preparation time with mill time of multiple units can greatly increase efficiency at chairside.  See the following videos to pick up on all the details of the case.
