Dental CAD (computer-aided design) is a cutting-edge technology that allows dentists to create precise digital models of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, dentures and all-on-x, using computer software. These digital files can then be used to guide the production of physical restorations using CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) techniques, such as milling or 3D printing. With dental CAD design, dentists can ensure the highest level of precision and accuracy in the restoration of their patients' teeth.
To get started with CAD/CAM dentistry, it is essential to understand what you want to get out of going digital. Whether it is to scale your business without adding overhead or to have more control with your cases, once you have determined your goals then you can get figure out what you need.
The next thing is to do your own research. There is so much information available online, start googling a few questions like: what is the best scanner to purchase if I want to print in-house or what printer is the best for a beginner. As you learn more, you will have more questions.
Once you have a bit of an idea of what is out there, give us a call here at evident. We have a team of dental experts who are dedicated to help you make the most of your digital tools and software, so you can get the best ROI and improve the overall efficiency and profitability of your practice.

Dental CAD (computer-aided design) is a cutting-edge technology that allows labs to create precise digital models of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, dentures and all-on-x, using computer software. These digital files can then be used to guide the production of physical restorations using CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) techniques, such as milling or 3D printing.
Our standard turnaround time is 24 hours; however, please give us a call as we have other options available.
We offer everything from crown & bridge to implants and ortho. Please reach out to us for more details and how we can help labs with CAD designs.
We do not fabricate cases ourselves, but we do have a network of fabrication partners that we can refer you to.
For our standard per unit charge, we take your credit card details and bill you on the 1st and 16th of every month. If you have prepaid for your units, you will be charged monthly on the 1st of every month.
For qualifying labs, prepaying refers to the option of paying in advance for your CAD designs. When you send your first case to Evident, you will be asked if you would like to prepay for your units.
By prepaying, you can lock in a more favorable rate for your design work. When you create your free evident account, you will be sent a pricelist outlining the differences in the pricing tiers (Hint: think 50% off single units)!
Here are a few other points about prepaying for your units:
Once you have used up your full prepay amount, any additional work will be charged at the prepay rate. At the end of the month you will get an invoice for any extra units.
The prepaid amount does not roll over at the end of the month. Any unused amount will not be carried forward, so it's recommended to utilize the prepaid amounts within the designated timeframe.
If you wish to move away from pre-paying for your units, you need to provide one week's notice before the next billing cycle. Please contact Evident at email@example.com and inform them about your decision to transition to the standard pricing structure.
If you choose to pre-pay for your units mid-month, you will not be charged the full $299. Instead, you will be charged a prorated amount based on the number of working days remaining in the month.
