1. Ivoclar Milling Solutions
Burbank Dental Lab has added Ivoclar PrograMill PM7’s to its technology tool belt. The PM7 is an ideal performance mill that has wet and dry processing capability. The precision 5-axis harmonic drive allows for the processing of a wide range of materials and indications, with vastly improved accuracy over previous generations of mills.
Burbank Dental Lab will be focusing on two specific materials with the PrograMill PM7 in 2019:
e.max restorations that are milled crowns that, thanks to the PM7’s accuracy, will compete with pressed restorations in terms of fit and accuracy while passing on production savings to our clients.
Burbank Dental Lab has been beta testing and perfecting our workflow in order to provide milled dentures via Ivoclar's Digital Denture process. In the first quarter of this year, Burbank Dental Lab will be launching our digital denture program using the Ivoclar PM7 mill. We will be able to deliver THE most accurate fitting and durable denture ever produced, with the potential to save you chair time and appointments.
