Dental computer aided design


Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has been used for decades in the manufacturing industry to produce precision items including parts and tools. It is being increasingly used in dentistry to boost the patient journey and experience. Today, CAD/CAM restorations are better fitting, more durable and more natural-looking than restorations have ever been before, enabling us to digitally design accurate crowns, bridges and more.


A revolutionary system, CEREC allows dental restorations such as crowns or veneers to be designed, created and fitted in just one day. Using this technology, we can economically and effectively restore damaged teeth in a single appointment, using high-quality ceramic material colour matched to your natural teeth. CEREC uses CAD/CAM software to design and create your custom restoration while you wait, before the fit is checked and it is bonded into place. CEREC gives us complete control over the final result, removes the need for temporary solutions and immediately restores your smile.

Dental CT Scans

Dental CT Scans

The CBCT scanner has been a significant addition to imaging dentistry, providing accurate 3D diagnostic images of a patient’s mouth. We have had a CBCT scanner on the Isle of Man since 2013. They can be used for dental implant planning and placement, wisdom tooth removal, endodontics and orthodontic treatment. The use of CBCT scanner technology has transformed the way we treat patients, greatly improving diagnosis and treatment planning in complex cases. The scan is minimally invasive and can be used to provide patients with a greater understanding of their treatment. It also minimises the risk of any errors during the process, which may have occurred with a less detailed image.

Dental X-rays

X-rays are an essential tool in diagnosing conditions in dentistry. Prior to or during treatment we may suggest dental x-rays to aid in diagnosis and treatment. Typical x-rays in dentistry include periapicals (of the roots), bitewings (to diagnose decay in the back teeth) and an OPG (orthopantogram). This x-ray may be required in orthodontics, trauma, periodontal disease or other treatment planning issues.

We use digital x-rays at Tracey Bell to ensure that radiation exposure is kept to a minimum and that each x-ray taken is required. Each x-ray will be graded, reported upon and filed in your clinical notes. We are always happy to share these x-rays with you and other health care professionals.
