In the competitive world of aesthetic restorations, details matter. In VITA’s Premium Denture course, participants learned the technical and business side of implant retained dentures from well-known instructor, trainer and author, Dennis Urban, CDT. Urban shared exclusive techniques on waxing, processing and finishing. “One technique I shared is a characteristic wax-up process which makes a wax try-in look exactly like a finished denture,” he says. “Because this procedure creates so much value for the patient and dentist, lab owners can charge a higher price for the final case.”
