Even with today’s communications tools many dentist and lab technicians never truly communicate.  The result is not only frustration but can result in an inferior product. In this two-part program we will follow a full upper arch case from beginning to end.  Dr. Tom Trinkner demonstrates a conservative preparation while ceramist Matt Roberts demonstrates the time it takes to build a single tooth and why records like a stick bite and digital pictures are so important.
