CAD/CAM Digital Technology At The Berkeley Clinic
Thursday, April 7th, 2016
At the Berkeley Clinic we only want the best for you, so we only use the best. Our highly skilled dental team are trained to use the most advanced digital equipment ; CAD/CAM, digital technology which stands for Computer – Aided Design and Computer- Aided Manufacturing. Digital technologies are changing our everyday lives. Similarly, in dentistry, they are essential for achieving results, quickly, simply and efficiently.
With the use of CAD/CAM digital technology, you can have same day dental restoration! This means that you can have your chipped tooth restored and your old fillings replaced in-house, the same day. At The Berkeley Clinic, we are using the latest technology so no matter how simple or complex the restoration, we have you covered. Just pop into our award-winning clinic, where you can relax in our lounge and will be made to feel right at home.
We start off the process by taking 3D scans of your teeth with the revolutionary CEREC omnicam. It’s like a virtual journey in your mouth! This easy and pain- free scan will be done in seconds, generating an exact replica of your teeth in natural colour without the need for a prior coating with powder or spray. This spray is used to make the teeth more visible and make sure all parts of the impression are recorded properly, however often patients find the taste of this unpleasant. No need to worry about this with our advanced scanner, as it can pick up the shape and shade of your teeth even when your mouth is wet with moisture.
Once the scan is complete, using CAD/CAM technology you can have crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays provided within the hour. The materials used to mill these are ceramic or resin-based, which allows our dentists to create natural-looking results for you!
Digital impressions prevent the need for impression materials to be placed in your mouth for long periods of time, which can often cause discomfort. This advanced technology allows you to feel more comfortable throughout your dental procedure.
With this painless, no fuss procedure your teeth can be restored at your convenience in a single visit with the highest quality ceramic dental restorations that fit perfectly. This decreases anxiety about coming to the dentist multiple times.
You won’t be able to tell the difference between your new teeth and your natural teeth. Not only are they durable but will allow you to eat normally without any discomfort or worry. Also, the accuracy of the shape of your new teeth will prevent gaps between crowns and surrounding teeth. Your results will have you oozing with confidence.
CAD/CAM in dentistry is proven and has a long track record of success and clinical studies. The Berkeley Clinic was the first dentist in the UK to to have and launch the revolutionary Cerec Omnicam with the newest 4.2. software.
You only have one set of teeth so you owe it yourself to look after them. Let us do the hard work for you. So come in and unwind in our pleasant surroundings. You and your smile will be glad you did.

Jamie in Germany
Friday, April 30th, 2010
Dr Jamie Newlands has be invited to the Sirona Head quarters in Germany at the end of next month to attend the CEREC meets CT Scanning event.
CEREC as a scanning and in-house milling system for tooth restorations is now being linked with CT scanners which detail the structure, dimensions and quality of the bone. Using both techniques in synergy means that implant cases are more streamlined and they are ultimately more accurate. This is a great benefit for patients and dentists alike.
Dr Newlands is already leading the way as far as dental technology is concerned. He currently has restored thousands of cases using the cerec system and he believes the new link between CT scanners and Cerec is a major step forward for implant cases.
The event will be showcasing the new system and the Berkeley Clinic is looking forward to being the first dentist in Scotland to implement this new system.

Dr Jamie Newlands To Demonstrate LAVA Scanner In Aberdeen
Tuesday, August 11th, 2009
For some of the most forward thinking dental professionals, the digital revolution has brought about significant advantages in the services offered to patients. Old gloopy impressions that can make you gag are set to be a thing of the past as digital impressions of a full mouth arch are now possible. Not only this, they are more accurate and effective and can be sent instantly as a file to the lab. This also means that the crowns, veneers or bridges are of the highest standard and best fit for the patient.
Dr. Newlands has been at the forefront of CADCAM dentistry every step of the way and The Berkeley Clinic has prided itself as being the most technologically advanced clinic in the UK. The results we achieve with our patients using this technology to its full advantage is mind-blowing. Jamie has been lecturing for 3M ESPE for the past two years on the LAVA COS and will be in Aberdeen on Tuesday 10th November 2009 at the Copthorne Hotel 5pm – 8pm.
