Keeping Airmen ready, one tooth at a time

A computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system makes a patient’s crown at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, Nov. 28, 2017. Once a crown is made, it goes through a process of proper grinding to fit the patient’s tooth, a porcelain furnace that will harden the crown, a staining if the crown needs to match the patient’s tooth and finally the dentist will perform a crown-cementing procedure on the patient’s tooth.
