An overview of cosmetic digital dentistry: Scan, Design, Mill, Print
CAD/CAM systems has been available for many years, but have recently become much more predictable, user friendly and affordable. Intraoral scanners enable dentists to digitally send impressions to their lab or mill in-house. Additionally, we are entering the era of in-house printing. This course explores what is currently possible with intraoral scanners, milling and 3D printing technologies. We will discuss how to successfully take digital impressions and use this to plan cosmetic cases using DSD and 3D printers. Attendees will learn the benefits of digital technologies and how these workflows compliment modern cosmetic dentistry.
