    This would be an excellent bridge, ha-ha, to our lab-grown stem cell replacements. “Lose a Tooth, Grow a Tooth, Lose a Tooth, Grow a Tooth…” http://goo.gl/WS8rz

    One in ten is actually pretty high considering the newness of the technology and that mainly only one company is offering it.

    This is not new technology. My dentist has had this for five years (and yes, it is still the coolest toy he’s got). A crown is now a one trip hour and a half trip to the dentist.

    This is hardly new technology, and it’s about as good as sliced white bread. Of course, it’s probably comparable to the average crown made by a “cosmetic” dentist. A conventional crown made by a good prosthodontist can last for decades, with a sound occlusal fit.

      This is not nearly state of the art, but its lining the pockets of the dentists who claim it is! Cerec is a good, stable technology. It is still entirely too dependent on costly, time consuming, and fallible human control and intereaction.
      Check back, we’re building a digital end to end solution that takes the guess work out of digital dentistry and will make cosmetic dentistry affordable to millions more.

      Has there been a comparison published between enamelled gold based crowns compared to carved porcelain life span ?

    Not new and not 3d printing. 3d printing you start from nothing and build up. This is a cad cam milling proces.

    Well, this is certainly very interesting. 3D printing definitely has what it takes to transform digital dentistry.
