From Aesthetic to Functional Results

The days of tedious handmade wax-ups are numbered. Dr. Paul Zhivago will show you how he integrates digital tools in his specialist prosthodontist practice. He uses 2D smile designs to discuss and manage his patient’s expectations. This proposal is then converted to a 3D smile design that can be transferred to the patient’s mouth and used for further planning, preparation, and temporization. These digital workflows allow you to plan treatments that have not only aesthetic outcomes but are also functional, ensuring the longevity of your restorations.

Perform full-mouth rehabilitation cases with minimum adjustments to the final restorations.
