Get Your Nerd On With Paul "The Science Guy"

August 18, 2020

The most used material on the fixed side of our industry is Zirconia. Introduced in the mid-2000's, it has taken over as the "go to" restoration in dentistry. But what exactly is Zirconia? How does it get from the earth into a mill?

Tune into this week's Voices from the Bench podcast to hear from the one and only Paul Cascone, SVP of R&D at The Argen Corporation. Paul comes on to tell us a little about alloys and a lot about zirconia: where it comes from, how it’s processed, how they get the shades, and what is next for this super popular product in our industry. Prepare to get your nerd on.
