Workflow A: Virtual Wax-up Design for Tooth Supported Restorations.
Design – Visualization – Production – Predictability

Course Description

Every wax-up builds the foundation of a new case design to establish a new functional and esthetic end goal for the patient and for us as clinicians. Many traditional techniques got described in the literature over the years. However, digital technology provides us with a number of tools to virtually mimic a variety of new esthetic set ups faster and more efficient. The development of improved designing software and the implementation of new production technologies, like 3D printing open up ways to establish improved digital workflows and wax up techniques.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the details of predictable workflows on how to virtually 3D design wax ups for a variety of indications for tooth supported restorations.
  • Understand techniques on how to implement newly generated files into the workflow for final restorations or as a predictable communication tool between dental offices and laboratories.

Michael Bergler, MDT, is internationally recognized in the area of esthetic ceramic restorations and CAD/CAM-technology. Furthermore he is co founder of the CAD/CAM-Ceramic-Center at University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine. He has published and lectured extensively on restorative materials and dental technology. In July 2013 he received a faculty position in the Department of Restorative & Preventive Sciences.
