High-Performance Workflows: Managing Multiple Materials in Your Laboratory
December 22, 2017
These high-performance materials used in conjunction with CAD/CAM technologies increasingly allow for multiple solutions for more restorative challenges.
New dental milling machines include a unique barcode reader that makes managing materials easier and more effective.
The development of materials has accelerated—and therefore, the need for technicians to know how these materials can be incorporated to stay competitive has become more critical.
As the number and capabilities of restorative materials continue to expand, the technician becomes an invaluable resource on the relative features of strength, esthetics, durability, machinability, cost, bicompatibility, indications, bonding—and more.
More options and advances call for greater scrutiny: Laboratories need to determine which materials best suit their individual business models and their clients' needs, as most dentists request the laboratory to decide on the materials to use.
This eBook reviews high-performance materials and how laboratories can gain a competitive advantage by developing an expertise on the capabilities of these new options and opportunities.
