Over 75% of our Fixed restorations are SCULPTURE. They are scanned & designed using the latest 3shape® dental software & milled by our Dental Mill® & Sirona InEos MCX5 CAD/CAM milling machines. If you have an intra-oral scanner, you can send your STL files directly to our lab in real time & without the need to use a delivery service which saves time & money. Contact us at 410-780-7700 to setup & integrate your system with ours.
