Non-digital production & esthetic tools for conventional & digital removable prosthetic
Friday April 7th, 2:00 pm-3:30 pm / Val Verde Amphitheater
Have you decided to forgo participating in digital manufacturing and are looking for a way to shorten processing times without quality compromise? You understand to remain viable you need to produce and offer something different, something more esthetic. Thomas Zaleske explains how three-minute microwave curing can shorten your production-curing times when fabricating conventional, partial denture and implant bar cases, and offer a better product. He also explains a technique for masking metal rests, major connectors and clasps in new and existing chrome partials with tooth- and tissue-colored light-cure composite, as well as a fast, post-process way of coloring denture bases and teeth to enhance the esthetic outcome.
Presentation applies to conventional, partial dentures and implant bar borne prosthetics.
