Daniel Alter, developer of the “Thimble Technique”. The Thimble Technique allows for a 3D outcome that creates a more realistic restoration. He will take you through understanding the philosophy of material choice and why using an absorbing material (Which is strong, lightweight, predictable, esthetically driven and, most importantly, will not damage the implant sites) is both successful and satisfying.
