      ok folks, here is a fun challenge....i have a 3unit anterior bridge over very LONG and skinny abutments. i need to mill this out of a very nice, super trans zirconia, and have it in my hands by end of the day monday.

      challenge: the size of the bridge requires a 24mm or more thick puck (of the aforementioned super trans zirc). also, maybe its my inept nature, but with the mill and tools i have, each time i mill or calculate the tool strategies, i end up chipping a margin because the shank of the 1mm tool is just ever so slightly bumping the margin or internal sidewall of one of the abutments.

      if you think you can make it happen, and have the necessary tools and zirconia, and get let me know ASAP if you feel comfortable giving it a whirl....contact me now. I am out of time on this one and absolutely need to have it happen. super challenging case and patient is running low on tolerating delays (not my fault i swear lol)

      pm me or post a reply. i will be watching...and praying hahaha

      When you think you've reached the end of the rope, turn around, you're going the wrong way. It's the beginning, not the end.

      Does it have to be Zirconia? Do you still do casting in-house? I think you know where I'm going ;)

      What's the shade?
      Also, considering where you are at, I'd call Jason Nicely in Chattanooga, TN, he's about the only one I know who could it to you by Monday (maybe?). I have a 25mm, pre-shaded A2 Zirlux, but I doubt I can have it to by Monday bud.
