What are the Benefits of Digital Restorations?

Precision and Accuracy

Digital technologies allow for extremely precise measurements and fabrication of dental restorations. This precision leads to a better fit, which can improve the longevity of the restoration and the overall health of the surrounding teeth and gums.


Although the initial investment in digital dentistry equipment can be high, the reduction in material waste, decreased need for rework, and the ability to perform multiple procedures in-house can lead to huge cost savings.

Speed and Efficiency

Digital restorations can often be designed, fabricated, and placed in a single visit, which is a significant improvement over traditional methods that may require multiple appointments. 

Patient Comfort

Digital impressions are generally more comfortable for patients than traditional methods, which often involve physical molds that can be unpleasant and trigger gag reflexes.

Improved Aesthetics

With advanced software, dentists can create restorations that closely match the color, shape, and size of a patient’s natural teeth. This results in a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Increased Case Acceptance

Patients can visualize proposed restorations through digital models, increasing their understanding, trust and acceptance of treatment plans.

Value for money in terms of time as well

It's fantastic. Dr. Hamid and Dr. Ahmad together, their experience with implants is massive. They know the whole process. They've gone through all the complications themselves so they're really just trying to fast track us. Give as much of their expertise and pass it to us. Very happy with things in terms of value for money in terms of time as well.
