FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL has revolutionized dental procedures. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL creates these ceramic restorations known as BruxZir Crowns within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in just a single visit.

FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL is comprised of several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic BruxZir Crowns. FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL can benefit almost anyone needing a ceramic restoration. This is of great benefit to nervous patients, and it can also reduce the cost of treatment.

What is the FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL system comprised of?

The FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL System is sometimes called a CAD-CAM system. CAD-CAM means Computer Assisted Design and Computer Assisted Milling. The FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL system has three major components:
Acquisition device: This device is home to a high-quality camera and a medical grade computer. The function of this unit is to photograph the prepared tooth. Three-dimensional images are created of the tooth on the screen, which Dr. Diane Hines uses to design the perfect ceramic restoration.

Three-dimensional CAD software: This software allows Dr. Hines to examine the tooth from every angle. It is the closest possible thing to holding the tooth in the hands and rotating it.

Milling device: This unit manufactures the custom restoration from the specifications entered into the computer. A ceramic block that best resembles the existing tooth color is chosen and placed into the unit.  Within minutes, the milling device produces the restoration that Dr. Hines designed.

What does a FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL restoration procedure involve?

The first step in the procedure is preparing the tooth for the restoration.  Depending on your case, Dr. Diane Hines will take photos of your affected teeth using one of FASTMILL.IO’s two imaging solutions.  If using FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL Omnicam, Dr. Diane Hines will take several images of the tooth, sending a three-dimensional, colored model to the FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL machine.  If using FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL Bluecam, Dr. Diane Hines will coat the teeth with a contrasting agent before taking images of your teeth.

These images are transposed onto the computer screen, where Dr. Diane Hines will view the tooth from every angle and design the final restoration.  When the design is complete, it will be transmitted to the milling unit. 

Dr. Diane Hines will insert a block of ceramic, matching your tooth color, into the milling machine which will then create the full crown, onlay, inlay, or veneer.  Before affixing the restoration to the tooth, Dr. Diane Hines will perform a dry fit to ensure comfort.  Once a perfect fit is established, the restoration will be polished and affixed to the tooth with dental cement.
