Welcome to The BRIDGE, an online network from LMT dedicated exclusively for members of the Dental Laboratory community.
Recent developments in digital technology are rapidly changing the way we approach planning and treating patients...See more with implant-supported restorations. Predictable outcomes are routinely derived through a coordinated effort between the restorative dentist, surgeon and technician. It is therefore imperative that the treatment team have common goals, knowledge of available technology and desire to incorporate this technology into the workflow to achieve optimal patient care and esthetic results.
This course will be an intense hands-on experience for all practitioners wishing to refine or upgrade their skills...See more in anterior bonded restorations.
Oral Stratified Build-Up Technique: How to Achieve Lifelike Implant Restorations with Gingival Porcelain
This course covers concept and application process of gingival porcelain for a naturally esthetic outcome. In this...See more two day hands-on course, Jungo Endo will explain, demonstrate, and train you with the fabrication of a three unit bridge: How to achieve lifelike implant restorations with gingival porcelain; what possible problems may be present in highly esthetic demanding cases and how to solve these problems.
