Are any labs going fully model-less? I love the idea, but it also scares the hell out of me.

i mean, imagine if what you got from your machine was right in shade and contour and you didnt need to do anything to it ?

Right, I can definitely imagine how awesome that would be. Do scans from an IOS tend to be that much more accurate than traditional polyvinyl impressions?

if i'm making what the patient himself/herself described, i can't care what other techs or docs think of my capacity to understand and create anything. i've satisfied the only important customer in the equation. if that means make a square blue central against ovate laterals and three bi's fine. i make-a three bi's.

exactly how i've extracted what the patient wanted - lets just say its telepathy and move on.

To your questions, yes. I do quite a bit of model free work. The Drs that are doing it are the least to complain about anything. I suspect they often whisper to themselves, 'good enough'.
I had a doc that went cerec who told me his crowns were “clinically acceptable “ .

And there it is! "Clinically Acceptable". The state of Dental Technology. I have watched this trend over the last 40 years and happy to retire shortly.

I wouldn't tell anyone I have that machine.
must be nice.

however i wouldn't say outsourcing to argen qualifies. you might get a finished product back, but thats not the same thing. like, could you even order a PFZ and get a crown with porcelain back?

I don't get a finished product back.
Much the same as having a milling machine in the back room.

You could order a zirconia coping and a milled emax so yes you can order a pfz. You just have to do the f'ing. Eviltongue

so indeed, would be nice to ask the machine to make a pfz and not have to do the f'ing eh ?
