In this webinar we will share the unique advantages that pressable ceramics offer both the laboratory and surgery. The latest generation of ceramics offer a time and cost effective route to producing natural, life like restorations due to their unique workability, and followability which allows us to press much thinner structures and get more units per press while maintaining high strength structures with superior light transmission properties. This allows us to create a colour stable pressed structures which in many cases require minimal ceramic layering in turn allowing the technicians and surgeons to focus on the ever increasing patient demands for strong and stable restorations that look like their natural teeth.
