IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime: Put to the ultimate test

June 09, 2020

Dental technicians routinely produce monolithic crowns and partially veneered mandibular posterior bridges. As a result, they get very excited when something different and highly challenging comes along, such as the individual incisor described in this article. In these situations, efficiency and profitability become secondary. The dental technician just has to take one quick look at the natural adjacent teeth to get the creative juices flowing. As the colour, anatomy and individual details of the teeth are registered, possible outcomes are immediately visualized. The following account is a case in point.

The copyCAD

June 02, 2020

Nature has always captivated us with its beauty. Whether it is a landscape, a sunset or the intricate details of a leaf, one marvels at natural aesthetics. The goal of an artist is to copy nature in every medium: painting, sculpture, music, photography. It is easy to see parallels in dentistry. The teeth and soft tissue display details on the macroscopic and microscopic scale that make up all their beauty. Even the smile has characteristics that define what is beautiful and what is not. Like an artist, the dentist and the dental technician use all their combined talents to create lifelike restorations. The secret to imitating nature is in the details of daily practice and hard work.

Digital workflows are becoming more popular and are in demand among clinicians and laboratory technicians owing to the increased incorporation of CAD/CAM tools into the daily practice. Digitisation of records and data through cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, intra-oral scans and model manipulation contributes to better communication processes for diagnostics, treatment planning, designing and manufacturing in dentistry.

Materials and systems for all ceramic CAD/CAM restorations

January 10, 2017

Dental crowns have been used for decades to restore compromised, heavily restored teeth, and for aesthetic improvements. New Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) materials and systems have been developed and evolved in the last decade for fabrication of all-ceramic restorations. Dental CAD/CAM technology is gaining popularity because of its benefits in terms of time consuming, materials savings, standardisation of the fabrication process, and predictability of the restorations.
