Laboratory work for Zirconia substructure CAD CAM

zirconia all-on-4 implant supported

CAD CAM laboratory work for Zirconia substructures Laboratory work for Zirconia substructures is more technique and product sensitive than some of the other options. We must take great care must in product selection and fabrication of zirconia substructures. <–5th post  6th in a series of 17 on topic  Next post–> Laboratory work for zirconia substructures […]
