Time: Jun 22, 2024 11:30 AM - 11:55 AM
Speaker: Amirali Zandinejad


Dental ceramics have become increasingly popular as restorative materials because of their esthetics and biocompatibility. Although today milling considered to be the gold standard for manufacturing ceramics with proven records, it does carry its own shortcomings and limitations. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing was introduced as a new manufacturing technique in dentistry and today 3D printing is available for manufacturing ceramic restorations. This new technology enables the production of parts with complex geometries, controlled properties, and surface characteristics with many innovative potentials in clinical dentistry.
