Dental Asia May/Jun 2019

Behind the Scenes MAY / JUNE 2019 DENTAL ASIA 57 I n this day and age, keeping up-to-date is important to dental technicians producing dental restorations using CAD/CAM technology as they know that their way of working is subject to ongoing technical changes. Thus, one has to make the right decisions at the right time. At Italy-based Guido Testa’s Advanced Dental Laboratory, the team aims to create lasting prosthetics of quality for its clients and their patients, always remaining at the forefront of modern work systems. With passion, we have always endowedourselves with the most innovative technologies and materials, paying attention to what the market has the best to offer. In the following paragraphs, I will be discussing the latest arrival in our laboratory: Renfert’s 3D video microscope. Like many other dental technicians, the training in my apprenticeship involved conventional methods such as casting metal crowns using the lost wax technique. This technique has proven itself over hundreds of yearswithexamples suchas the Riace Bronzes, cast about 460 BC. In recent years, the rapid changes to digitally manufactured restorations using CAM technologies indicate the need for careful quality control to the highest degree possible. For this reason, we have been utilisingmicroscopes ormagnifying glasses to enlarge the object. For example, now when I produce dental restorations using conventional methods, Imake use of optical aids. Presently, there is an innovation in this field that allows for the production of dental restorationswith enlargedobject viewingon a screen in 2D or 3D mode.
