Shaping Dentistry with CAD/CAM Technology
CAD/CAM technology has been used in manufacturing for many years. CAD/CAM is an acronym that means computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. Today, CAD/CAM technology is used in dentistry to help dentists and dental lab technicians fabricate precise shapes and sizes for dental restorations, including crowns, dental implant crowns and bridges.
Dentists use CAD/CAM technology to provide their patients with durable, well-fitted single and multiple tooth restorations in a more efficient manner than traditional lab-fabricated restorations. Another advantage of CAD/CAM technology is that it can allow a typical two-visit tooth restoration to be accomplished in one visit. In some cases this means a tooth restoration can be prepared and completed all in one day.
Dentists use CAD/CAM technology to design the anatomical features, size and shape of a tooth restoration on a computer. The CAD/CAM computer screen displays a 3-D custom image of your teeth and gums, allowing your dentist to draw the precise design of the tooth restoration. The CAD/CAM machine fabricates the restoration through a milling machine that crafts the tooth-like ceramic material into a precise replica of the drawing.

Would You Like To Have A Straight Set Of Teeth?
According to studies, 96% of adults believe that having an attractive smile makes a person more appealing toward the opposite gender. When respondents were asked which things they notice first in a person’s smile, among common answers were straightness, cleanliness, and whiteness of teeth.
Having straight teeth is more than improving your smile. It can also impact your career, social status, and overall well-being. That said, it’s crucial to think carefully which dental treatment you’re choosing.

My family and I have been going to de Man and Hoediono Dentistry over ten years. Their professionalism, courtesy, and personal touch have always impressed me. We always look forward to our next appointment….and who says that about their dentist.
Hi Harry, I just wanted to reach out and thank you and your staff for your fantastic work.
I couldn’t be happier with my experience at your practice. I used to find going to the dentist very stressful and would put it off for long periods of time. Now, thanks to you and your staff, I am very comfortable and no longer dread the experience.
I’m so grateful for all of the work you and the entire staff do to keep my smile healthy.
Dr. Helen, Dr. Harry and staff, Bill and I would like to thank all of you for your kindness and understanding and making us feel so welcome and comfortable. We are so happy we made the decision to come to you for all our dental needs. You all are the best. We say this from our heart!
Faith told me when she got home that her experience going to your practice was unlike any other she’s had in the past.
She used words like “pain-free” , “comfortable” and “pleasant”, words you just don’t hear from people when they are talking about their trip to the dentist!
So a big thank you for that!
Just wanted to say “thank-you” to everyone for making my last visit to you on March 21st a very comfortable visit. You know I don’t like visiting the dentist, but you make me very relaxed and confident that you’re treating me very well. From Kathy’s friendly greeting in the office, to the expert treatment I get from Stacy, to Dr. Helen’s great “chair-side” manner and professionalism, you’re all the greatest. Thanks for all the work you do to keep my teeth and gums healthy. It’s all very much appreciated. Thanks!
We just got home from my dental appointment with Mike. What a positive and reassuring experience I had. Each member of your team was not only professional and courteous, but also attentive and supportive to my individual needs. Thanks so much to ali of you. Looks like we found our dental “home”,
I am extremely pleased with the exemplary dental care that I and my family have received for the past twenty years from Dr. Hoediono and Dr. de Man. They are always professional, up to date and consistently pays attention to our specific dental needs. Their staff are courteous, friendly and well informed. I unconditionally recommend Dr. Hoediono, Dr. de Man and associates to those who seek quality, knowledgeable and personable dental care delivered in a thorough and attentive manner.
Just a few lines to express my appreciation and to say thank you, for continuously providing impeccable service with “health and hygiene motto” always a priority. Your professionalism and people skills exceed my every level of expectation. This is a true five star Ritz-Carlton experience – “a place where the genuine care and comfort of our guests is our highest mission.”
You always guide me easily throughout the entire process of every procedure, and you always make sure I am comfortable and updated at each step of the way. I would recommend De Man & Hoediono Dentistry to anyone who is in search of a new Dentist. Their professionalism and dedication make them the only choice.
My family and I have been visiting this practice from the day that Harry and Helen first arrived. We are very particular in who we deal with in all aspects of life and especially when it comes to health care. We have used many dentists throughout our lives and would place this practice and all of its staff right at the top of the list. They are truly professional and I for one have never had to second guess their opinions. I am sure that many practices envy their constant growth (due only to what they deserve).
Drs Hoediono and De Man along with all of their staff are always friendly and caring. I can always count on getting the best service available. More importantly, I never have to worry about taking my kids to see the dentist. The Dentists and hygienists at the office are great with putting the kids (and adults) at ease. They’re all great at making us feel calm and relaxed.
You can always expect a professional and friendly environment. I never have to think twice about referring them to friends and family. .
Good morning Dr Tim,
I was aiming to email you back a while ago but it got postponed each day. But I’ve been thinking about your work and I would like to say once again “Thank you very much for the job well done!” My tooth doesn’t hurt anymore, no more very sensitive feeling when I drink my coffee or cold water. Now I can enjoy drinking them hahaha! Thanks also for the picture.
Anyway, just to say also that you are an amazing dentist and I feel that you strive for the best when it comes to the result of your work.
