In part two of Dr. Michael Koczarski's program on taking a mock-up to completion, Dr. Koczarski evaluates the completed mock-up to see how close it is the finished restoration.  Dr. Koczarski will demonstrate a minimal preparation and seating of the final restorations, he will also  demonstrate how to correct the gingival zeniths using a diode laser.  From the mock-up, to the provisionals, to the seating of the final restorations, this program will explain why Dr. Koczarski believes each step is predicated on the next and help deliver predictable results every time.
