DentGroup Dental Clinics offer a full range of dental services and aesthetics dentistry is one of them. In a sector quite functional, DentGroup unites aesthetics dentistry and digital dentistry.

What is digital dentistry?
Digital dentistry is the use of an interactive intraoral scanner and computer assisted treatment rather than conventional methods. 

What are the areas of digital dentistry? 
Temporary and permanent porcelain veneers, dental crown, porcelain and composite inlay and onlay filling, dental implant crownsand denture prostheses are the areas of digital dentistry. 

How is digital dentistry applied? 
An interactive computer technology named CEREC is used in digital dentistry. A measurement of your jaw is taken with the computer’s intraoral scanner in minutes and it is modeled in computer environment as a virtual model. Dental design is made on this virtual model with a computer program.  The designed tooth is then produced via CEREC production unit. This system can be defined as a sort of 3D scanner and printer. 

How long is the treatment process? 

Measuring the jaw with intraoral scanner takes 3 or 5 minutes. That is to say, your tooth is restored and attached within the same day. 

What are the advantages?

Since your jaw is measured in minutes and thanks to same-day restoration, your new tooth is attached within the same day. There is no need to use trays or measurement materials which are used in conventional dentistry. This is a big advantage for the patients who have gag reflex. More coherent and accurate restoration can also be made thanks to digital dentistry. 

What are the materials used in digital dentistry? 
The materials are determined by the dentist according to the area of restoration and density of the strength. Zirconia, empress, composite and composite-porcelain mixture are used in digital dentistry. 

What are the areas that digital dentistry cannot be applied?
Removable dentures (complete, partial, and removable) can’t be applied in digital dentistry yet.
