New trends in chairside digital biomimetic dentistry

Chairside dentistry has always meant a paradigm shift in the workflow of the dental clinic. However, the limitation in the design of restorations, the time required to use it and the limited number of millable materials, combined with the considerable investment, were a limiting factor for its development. Today the evolution and wide adoption of digital technology such as intraoral scanners and open CAM systems, combined with the new generation of ceramic materials, open up a much broader field for the application of chairside treatments.
