Using intraoral scanners and equipment to scan, outsource or produce locally, digitally designed restorations are done predictably and efficiently. Dental technicians will have the chance to learn how to utilize the maximum of the digital impressions and CAD/CAM equipment to create restorations like prepped or non-prep veneers or simplifying complex implant surgery and interdisciplinary cases using chairside or lab equipment.
