In this lecture Conrad Rensburg and Jack Marrano will take the audience on a journey of exploration, like no other before. In today’s ever evolving digital landscape, restoring a full arch hybrid or even a single crown requires so much more than just good computer software. Utilizing technologies to assist, the modern-day technician, plays an integral part in not only processing the final prosthesis but also in planning and design of these complex cases. Conrad will discuss, how the technician of tomorrow, not only supports through products but also educates through technology. Jack will share how he utilizes these innovative zirconia materials and modern workflows, to create true functional beauty.
