Here is a case that shows off 2 things that I am jealous of CEREC InLab users: Katana bridge blocks or pucks and 3D printed die models (aka Geller Models). This patient had an implant fail on her and wanted nothing to do with titanium, so we went with a bridge. She had decay all around each tooth, so I didn’t feel terrible departing from my normal implant protocol. This case was sent via CEREC connect.
Jesse Flor from Great Smiles Dental Lab did this case in Katana for $45 a unit!!! Its $40 if you just have the units glazed. No designing and a 2 day turnaround! Plus he sent me these models from Inlab. These have removable dies and were printed on my new favorite printer, the Phrozen Shuffl which is a 50 micron resolution printer for $506! It has a small build plate so I don’t recommend it for aligners or ortho, but for surgical guides, night guards and die and analog models, it is an incredible deal and is super accurate.
I love the results. Yes, it is a bit more opaque than the adjacent teeth but for the posterior I can easily see this replacing Emax and traditional Zirconia. Not sure what that horizontal line is on the pre molar, will observe that. I don’t think its fracture as she had no pain.
You want to play wit printers like the Form 2, Monray, the Shuffle and maybe, the new Nextdent printer? Come to the next dental 3D printing party in Austin Oct 12-13!! Register below:
