PRESS RELEASE: Newest Addition to CS Solutions Portfolio Completes HD Chairside Workflow for Same-Day Restorations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Feb. 21, 2019

Carestream Dental is pleased to offer doctors a complete HD chairside workflow with the new CS 3100 milling system, the latest addition to the CS Solutions portfolio. Combining highly precise four-axis wet milling with top-of-the-line CAD software, the self-contained CS 3100 delivers accurate and durable restorations for doctors seeking to offer patients same-day solutions.

The CS 3100 is ideal for the milling of full-contour crowns, full-contour bridges, inlays, onlays and veneers using hybrid resin, ceramic, and zirconia.1  For the optimal chairside experience, exocad2 ChairsideCAD software is completely integrated into the CS Solutions platform. The software is based on exocad‘s proven and trusted technology and offers more automation with a simplified user interface for the optimal chairside experience. Features like Smart Milling Queue Management means there’s no need to wait until a restoration is completely milled to capture new digital impressions, design additional restorations or place other cases in the milling queue. In fact, tooth restoration can be completed in as little as one hour, eliminating the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments.

“In-house milling gives doctors control of the entire restoration process, so they know they are delivering an excellent product to their patients,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “Plus, the ability to advertise same-day restorations in competitive makers is attractive to patients.”  

For the ultimate restorative versatility, the mill offers four distinct milling options: Milling; grinding, the precision and surface finish of which can be ten times better than milling; carving, which significantly reduces the processing time of single blocks; and thrilling, which drills a hole in a standard block for screw-retained crowns, eliminating the need to purchase costly blocks which already have the screw channel. Highspeed, vibration-free milling creates sharp margins and smoother surfaces and significantly reduces the amount of chipping that can occur from the vibration caused by mills that use two-spindle, non-brushless technology.

The CS 3100 is part of the CS Solutions restorative portfolio; dentists can capture digital impressions directly using the CS 3600 intraoral scanner or create conventional impressions and digitize them with a Carestream Dental CBCT system. They can then use the image data to design a crown with the integrated exocad software and mill the designed restoration with the CS 3100.

The mill is on display in the Carestream Dental booth #3602, at the Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting.

The show will also be attendees’ last chance to participate in the Chairside Challenge, Carestream Dental’s face-paced racing competition that pits colleagues from across the country against each other for the chance to win a trip to the Porsche Driving Experience Center in Atlanta, Ga., on April 11, 2019. Stop by and put the pedal to the metal.
