The article compares the clinical acceptability of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM)-milled dental restorations with handmade laboratory restorations. It offers observations on the practice management concepts associated with the in-office use of CAD/CAM. It also evaluates the potential influence of another in-office CAD/CAM device.
