The future of dentistry is here, and it's looking pretty darn good.

The future of dentistry is digital.

That's right—we're talking about everything from 3-D scans to artificial intelligence to the use of dental labs as a resource for dentists. And that's just the beginning!

In 2022, digital dentistry will be a daily reality for you and your patients; you'll be able to 3-D print custom crowns and bridges on-site in a matter of hours, and you'll be able to send your patient's x-rays to a lab for repair or replacement in as little as 24 hours (instead of weeks).

Digital dentistry is a new trend that has begun to take off in the medical industry, and it is still in its early stages. With the rise of digital dentistry, dental labs are now able to provide a wider range of services than ever before.

With digital dentistry, a dentist can use their computer to make molds of their patient's teeth and make crowns, bridges, and veneers from those molds without having to make physical models first. This allows them to create more precise restorations for patients who need them.

Digital dentistry also allows for 3D printing of teeth so that dentists can create custom-fit tooth replacements for their patients based on scans of their mouths. These 3D printed teeth are more lifelike than traditional dentures and can be created in minutes rather than days or weeks as with traditional methods.

The uses of 3D printing and computer-assisted design (CAD) software have already been implemented in many dental labs, but the technology is still not widespread in the field. That's changing fast.

In 2022, it's expected that all dentists will have access to digital dentistry technology that makes it possible to create an accurate digital representation of a patient's mouth and teeth using only one or two x-rays. These digital impressions are then used to make custom crowns and other restorative materials on-demand—without the need for any physical impressions or models.

In addition to eliminating the need for physical models and molds, digital dentistry also allows dentists to make more accurate diagnoses because they can view their models from multiple angles and zoom in on specific areas with greater detail than ever before. And since each patient's treatment plan is customized using these digital impressions, there's no need for mass production methods—which means fewer mistakes and lower costs for everyone involved!

Digital dentistry is helping dental labs become more efficient at providing high-quality products for their customers while saving time and money in the process.
