For some dental clinics, intra-oral scanning to create a digital rather than physical impression of a patient’s dentition is but the first stage of an in-house production of a crown, bridge or inlay. While many dentists send the digital impression to a dental technician with a purchase order for the required prosthesis, chairside manufacture offers the advantage of one-session treatment and the close involvement of the dentist in producing the prosthesis.
